Tim Warburton

Rice University
Over the last decade Tim has developed and analyzed discontinuous Galerkin methods for the time-domain Maxwell’s equations. He has recently extended this research agenda to include the development of high order, local artificial radiation boundary conditions to provide closure for external scattering simulations. Tim’s work has been funded by the AFOSR, ARO, NSF ITR, NSF DMS, and Sandia National Laboratory. He has also contributed to the development of the Nektar, USEMe, and Sledge++ software for high order finite element and

Tim Warburton started his academic career as an undergraduate at Oxford University studying maths. Subsequently he studied for a PhD, advised by Karniadakis, in the Division of Applied Math at Brown University. His thesis work focused on the development of high order finite element methods for computational fluid dynamics. After post doctoral stints in the Computing Laboratory at Oxford University, and with Hesthaven at Brown University he spent three years as an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of New Mexico. Tim is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computational and Applied Math at Rice University.
