**Research Interests:***Scientific Computing, Analysis, Potential Theory*My research has focused on the evaluation of singular and singular integrals arising from applications in fluids and electromagnetics. In certain applications we may formulate solutions to boundary value problems in terms of boundary integrals which, depending upon the point of evaluation, may be singular or nearly singular resulting in a loss of accuracy in traditional methods for approximating such integrals. My research has focused on using tools of analysis to improve the accuracy of such methods.
