Dr. Carol Woodward’s research focuses on nonlinear solvers and time integration methods and software for large-scale applications as well as in code and calculation verification. She leads the development and deployment of the SUNDIALS package of time integrators and nonlinear solvers which garners over 25,000 downloads each year. SUNDIALS is a part of the Exascale Computing Project and the FASTMath SciDAC Institute. Dr. Woodward also participates in an earth system SciDAC project on assessing and improving numerical convergence in atmospheric physics. She is also developing parallel-in-time integration methods for transmission power grid simulation as part of the DOE’s Advanced Grid Modeling Program. Dr. Carol Woodward has been a computational mathematician in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) since June of 1996. Prior to that time, she attended Rice University where she received her PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics and Louisiana State University where she graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics.
