Research Interests:
I arrived as the new Chair of MCS in July 2002. My primary research interests are in computational applied mathematics and, in particular, computer arithmetic. The main focus of my work in computer arithmetic has been on the level-index system which is an alternative to the usual floating-point arithmetic system for numerical computations. Other areas in which I have worked include functional analysis, optimization, numerical analysis, parallel processing, computer vision and computer algebra.
