I am a third-year graduate student in the Computational and Applied Mathematics department (CAAM) at Rice University. My advisor is Béatrice Rivière. My research interests are in coupled flow and geomechanics. I’m currently developing an accurate and stable numerical method for solving the immiscible two-phase fluid flows in deformable porous media problems in three-dimensions.
