Associate Professor of applied mathematics at KAUST. Some links to learn more about me:

In terms of computational science, my interests are mainly:

  • Numerical analysis of ODE and PDE discretizations
  • Numerical methods for hyperbolic PDEs
  • High performance computing and scalable algorithms
  • Scientific software development
  • Scientific computing in Python

I'm a lead developer of the PyClaw package, an extension of Clawpack, which is a finite volume solver for hyperbolic PDEs.

comment LaTeX templates for Computational Linguistics / Linguistics / Computer Science Theses
The styling of a thesis usually is dictated by your university, and not by the discipline you're working in. So I don't think this question has a useful answer. Of course, there might be some latex packages that are particularly useful for CS (but packages != templates).
