Broad-based interest in computational physics algorithm development and implementation, with an evolving interest in computational co-design. Detailed contributions in the areas of: modern scalable algorithms for fluid and kinetic modeling of plasmas; moving-grid methods, adaptive mesh refinement; and implicit algorithms, Newton-Krylov methods, multilevel techniques. Broad-based interest in computational and theoretical plasma physics at the macroscopic scale, the kinetic scale, and across these scales (multi-scale). Detailed contributions to magnetic reconnection, magnetic confinement, and inertial confinement.
