Dr. Jason F. Ventrella


Background:

I received a B.S. in physics from M.I.T. in 1996 and a Ph.D. in physics from U.T. Austin in 2002. My research to date has been in the field of numerical relativity. This involves solving Einstein's equations numerically as a set of nonlinear differential equations.

I've used many different numerical methods to accomplish this including: finite differences, spectral methods, and artificial neural networks.
