The anisotropic viscosity study, that I first wrote about back in 2015, is finally published...

I recently published a paper with my adviser about the geophysical mechanism we believe created the Columbia Basin, a large low-lying region of central Washington and Oregon.

I was recently making slides for a talk about data representation, which required making figures to demonstrate the shortcomings of the Jet color scale. In the process I wrote a script to undo the colormap from published figures, and learned some new stuff about colors and data formats.

I've been working a bit lately on fluid flow problems involving materials with anisotropic viscosities. That is, deforming such a material in one direction is easier than in another direction. An example of such a material in the real world is a sequence of rock layers with varying strengths. In simple shear along the layered plane the stronger ...
