My area of research is numerical analysis. My Ph.D. thesis was written under the guidance of Lars Wahlbin and I worked very closely with Alfred Schatz. While a CAM student, I had the opportunity to take a variety of courses, including engineering, computer science, and mathematics. It was great to be in a supportive environment that allowed me to make close bonds with fellow students. CAMs commitment to diversity was a major reason I attended Cornell. Many Cornell faculty were instrumental in making sure under-represented students were successful.
