I'm a numerical analyst and computational scientist, interested especially in time-dependent nonlinear wave phenomena. I'm interested in everything that goes into the computational solution of a scientific. problem: applications, numerical methods, analysis, software development, and high performance computing.

David Ketcheson is a Professor of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (AMCS) and Principal Investigator of the Numerical Mathematics Group. He is also a member of the Extreme Computing Research Center.
