Biographical Summary

My background is reactive transport and biogeochemical reaction modeling. My interest is in the interactions and feedbacks between fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, and reactions in fully coupled systems. These days I am primarily interested in scientific software development. My focus is on improving the quality of scientific software by modernizing the development process and automated reproducible workflows. I focus on unit and regression testing, continuous integration systems, workflow automation and documentation.
