Empowering Leadership: Computing Scholars of Tomorrow Alliance
I am a first year Computational Science PhD student at the University of Texas El Paso, with an MS in Applied Mathematics and BS in Mathematics and Spanish from the University of New Mexico.  My research focus is in multiscale computational modling of fluid flow through porous media for carbon sequestration and enhanced oil recovery operations.  I have worked as a mathematics lecturer at the University of Texas El Paso, and interned at National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), and NASA Ames Research Center.  I absolutely love solving Partial Differential Equations using numerical techniques, especially Finite Difference Method and Galerkin Finite Element Method, and I hope to learn how to incorporate fast, parallelized versions of these methods to tackle large scale simulations of fluid flow.
