Daniel's primary research interest is the development, analysis and implementation of fast, stable and accurate numerical algorithms for approximation of partial differential equations arising in engineering and natural sciences. Another research topic Daniel has focused on is the development of artificial boundary conditions that are required to solve time dependent partial differential equations on unbounded domains.
