Research Interests

Numerical Linear Algebra with emphasis on parallel computing. Current interests include(i) the development of preconditioned iterative parallel algorithms for solving those linear systems that arise from the finite element discretization of the 3-D Navier-Stokes equations in fluid dynamics, and (ii) the design and implementation of Problem Solving Environments (PSE's) on parallel platforms.
