First things first: my name is John, but I go by Jack.

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. I am co-advised by Professors Uri Shumlak of the Aeronautics and Astronautics department, and Jingwei Hu of the Applied Mathematics department. My research focuses on efficient algorithms for kinetic equations of plasma, specifically the collisional transition regime of $$\mathrm{Kn} \gtrsim 10^{-2}$$.

Prior to graduate school, I worked at Square in Payments Engineering, and was a technical co-founder at Inscriptive, Inc.
