My interest is Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing in general,
and Numerical and Applied Linear Algebra in particular.
I am currently the President of the International Linear Algebra Society (ILAS),
one of the SIAM representatives to the Mathematical Council of the Americas,
and a member of the Selection Committee for the AWM Dissertation Prizes.
