I am doing my last year of master’s at the University of Saskatchewan in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. My area of research is scientific computing and numerical simulation. Presently, I am working on the PDE solver package BACOLI, a robust solver that is adaptive in space and time. So far we modified this package such that it solves systems of ODEs and PDEs, an example of which is the heart simulation equations. This is my second masters degree, sharpening my skills on the industrial mathematics and computer science.

When I’m not doing my research, I love spending time with my family, listening to the music and developing familiarity with the recent high tech’s progress in the digital world. The perspective that I see the life can be described by a sentence from John von Neumann, “If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.”
