I am a Senior Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM working on uncertainty quantification and validation & verification problems. I specialize in Polynomial Chaos Expansions and sparse-grid methods. In March 2015 I defended my PhD from Duke in the Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science department. My dissertation may be found in the Duke library.
In addition to my professional interest, I am an avid cyclist, chef, and home brewer.
I also maintain a kitchen laboratory notebook I call KitchenKatalog. It is open to the public but really not written with the public in mind. It is a way for me (and my wife) to see what we have made (including changes), collect recipes, and have a long-lasting reference. In August 2015, I got fed-up with WordPress (a common target for hacking) and decided to use (and greatly expand) my burgeoning Python knowledge to remake the site myself (and export the old content). It is very much a work-in-progress, but I am happy with it so far (though I want to redo the internals to be faster and more efficient).
Not an easy undertaking requiring lots of little edge cases. ↩
