Research Interests

The goal of my research is the development, analysis, and deployment of computational methods that integrate data with simulation and optimization with the aspiration to support decision making in challenging problems in the applied sciences. The main applications that drive my research are in medical imaging. More info can be found here.

Open Positions and Academic Advising

I have research projects for graduate and undergraduate students to work on challenging problems in computational mathematics with applications in imaging. Undergraduate students must be currently enrolled at the University of Houston. Graduate students need to apply to the graduate program of the Department of Mathematics ( Contact me for more details.


I am a faculty adviser for the Texas Theta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon (PME). Information about joining PME can be found here.
