Welcome to Jason Torchinsky's Webpage

Jason Torchinsky's Webpage for all Jason Torchinsky webpage-related needs.

Hello! I’m Jason Torchinsky, a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Mathematics department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in mathematics and physics from Union College in 2018.

I am currently working with Professor Samuel Stechmann on projects pertaining to parallel computing in computational climate science. I am also working with Mark Taylor on the Department of Energy's Energy Exascale Earth System Model and Dr. Lekha Patel on a data-driven computational model of a fog chamber. In the past, I have done research in computational fluid dynamics at Los Alamos National Labs and Union College, computational topology at Union College, as well as computational algebraic number theory at California State University Channel Islands as part of their 2017 Summer REU.

My research interests are primarily in computational mathematics and simulating physical systems using high-performance computing (even for the small simulations I do now!).

I am now funded by the Department of Energy’s Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, and was a teacher’s assistant in my department during the 2018-2019 academic year.
