About me. Since July 2011, I have been holding a Full Professor position at the Department of Mathematics,   The Pennsylvania State University.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" in Sofia, Bulgaria.
I have attended the Mathematics High School in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria (class of 1981; the site is in Bulgarian).

I am working in the general area of computational mathematics. My research is focused on numerical methods for partial differential equations; numerical linear algebra; multilevel methods for linear systems and optimization; nonlinear approximation tools in compression of data and machine learning; and the applications of such mathematical techniques in hydrogeology, resource economics, physics and other sciences.
