Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Houston and hold adjunct appointments at Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University.

My interests are in computational mathematics and physiology, with a focus on the cardiovascular system.

Here is my CV and my google scholar.

My twin brother David is faculty at the University of Texas at Austin. Here is his website.
