Research Interests

I develop and analyze numerical methods for solving problems in statistics, chemistry, and materials science. I am currently investigating a family of variance reduction methods for Markov chain Monte Carlo. I am also interested in atomistic-to-continuum couplings, which are methods for the simulation of defects in crystalline materials.
