My research interests focus on the application of numerical simulations to complex systems containing a wide range of length scales and time scales. The goal is to model the essential physics of the problem in as simple and fundamental a way as possible. By comparing the predictions of numerical simulations of a mathematical model with experimental measurements, we gain understanding of the underlying physical phenomena in situations where analytic theory is impossible.
