Research, Projects, and Reports

Overview

The following are reports I have produced for various class assignments and research projects. More effort has gone into them than the standard homework assignment, and they tend to demonstrate my abilities in data presentation and desktop publishing.

  • Solving Poisson’s Equation for the State of Maryland

    My term project in PHYS411 was to develop an implementation of the finite element method and use it to solve for the electric potential within an arbitrary grounded boundary due to an arbitrary distribution of enclosed charge.
