Finite Element Methods for Computing and Physical Scientists
About The Professor
Dr Ham's research interests centre on the development and composition of high level abstractions for scientific computation, particularly geophysical fluids. His interests span computational and computer science and include both new numerical schemes and novel approaches to their implementation. He has published on the stability and symmetry characteristics of several new numerical schemes and has lead work on the development of new software toolkits for finite element models as well as a generic user interface system for scientific models.
Dr Ham's most recent work is on the automatic generation of finite element models, particularly targetting unconventional hardware such as graphical processing units.
