Research Description: 

Gibson's primary research interests are computational electromagnetics, finite element and finite difference methods, and inverse problems. Research topics coinciding with primary interests include: wave propagation modeling, homogenization, direct and indirect (sparse) linear solvers, optimization and regularization techniques, high performance and parallel computing, parameter identification and sensitivity analysis, and modeling uncertainty and variability in PDE's. Current work involves finite element and finite difference methods for time-domain electromagnetics in dispersive media.
