Software

I am the maintainer of
XBraid,
an open source C/MPI implementation of the multigrid reduction in time
(MGRIT) methodology. It is a nonintrusive, scalable and parallel
library for multigrid in time.

I am a developer for
PyAMG, an open source
Python/C++ implementation of both classical algebraic multigrid and
smoothed aggregationbased algebraic multigrid. PyAMG has had thousands of
downloads from over a hundred countries.

I am a developer for
hypre,
an open source benchmark library of highperformance preconditioners
that features parallel multigrid methods for both structured and
unstructured grid problems. Hypre has had thousands of downloads from
over a hundred countries.
