Mathematical Modeling and Analysis, Computing Division,
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)

Dr. J. David Moulton is a team leader in the Applied Mathematics and Plasma Physics Group in the Theoretical Division at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and he is the Multi-Process HPC Simulator Thrust lead for ASCEM. He received his B.Eng and M.Eng in Physics from McMaster University and a Ph.D in Applied Mathematics from the University of British Columbia. His current research focuses on advanced discretizations and multilevel algorithms for flow and reactive transport in highly heterogeneous porous media. In addition, he is investigating a variety of model reduction techniques that target enhanced efficiency and accuracy of uncertainty quantification in multiscale systems, in conjunction with new approaches to ensemble-based data assimilation. Dr. Moulton continues to work on parallel scalable implementations of robust variationally based multigrid solvers for logically structured grids, which have significant advantages on emerging architectures. He has developed robust and efficient preconditioners for various mixed finite element and mimetic finite difference discretizations on severely distorted meshes with highly discontinuous coefficients.
