I'm a professor at Stanford University in computational mathematics. My colleagues and I develop algorithms and computer tools to simulate natural processes and optimize engineering processes, with a particular emphasis on fluid flows. For example, we built a simulator that can predict the movement of oil, gas and water in a ...




“Pooh," said Rabbit kindly, "you haven't any brain." "I know," said Pooh humbly.”

Apart from fluid flow research, I am very interested in energy and the challenges we face in this world to power an ever energy-hungrier population in a sustainable fashion. I love teaching and teach courses ranging from applied mathematics to energy systems to sail and yacht design. I also run the Institute for Computational...

I'm a lucky girl: I have the dream job I always wanted. It's this wonderful combination of education and outreach, research and leadership in a great institution (and a very beautiful place with a good climate).
