Kevin Deweese

I'm a 6th year PhD student in Dr. John Gilbert's CSC lab here at UCSB. My areas of interest include graph theory, scientific computing, and high performance computing.

In the past I have collaborated with Erik Boman and other folks at Sandia National Laboratories on a project using linear algebraic tools to analyze large unstructured networks.

I'm currently working with Richard Peng at Georgia Tech and Gary Miller at Carnegie Mellon on implementing provably fast methods for solving Laplacian and SDD linear systems.

I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a B.S. in computer science and physics in 2011.
