Welcome to my Personal Webpage

Currently, I am a PhD student in the department of Scientific Computing at Florida State University under the advisement of Max Gunzburger and Janet Peterson. I graduated from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY with a Mechanical Engineering degree in 2011 and then went on to FSU to get my Masters in Computational Science in 2013. Along with Computational Science, I have a number of interests including modeling and simulations, gas-turbine engines (and the planes they power), new and exciting algorithms, emerging technologies, Running and a number of other outdoors activities.

If you have any questions about any of the projects presented on this page or have any suggestions for improvement, please contact me at my FSU email address: dw11d at my dot fsu dot edu. I would love to hear from you with any comments or questions! Collaboration is key in this new computational science field and I would be more than happy to talk to anyone even remotely interested in the work we do in the Department of Scientific Computing. I make no guarantee's on the correctness or usefulness of any of the code contained within this website so as always, take it with a grain of salt.

This website is devoted to presenting and cataloguing some of the projects that I have worked on and intend to work on. Feel free to use and borrow any code you may find contained within any of these webpages but I ask that nothing be used or incorporated in a commercial setting. Everything is licensed under The Creative Commons whose legalese can be found here. Basically I am happy to provide the code and information contained within this website to anyone trying to get a hang of the methods or seeking to build on my research with further research to help feed the hungry flames of progress. But I do not approve of someone seeking to make a profit off of code intended for public use.
