I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Advanced Computing Laboratory in the Institute of Computational Science at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) in Lugano, Switzerland. I also work with the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics group at ETH Zürich. I am part of the GeoPC PASC project.
Previously, I earned a PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Caltech; my thesis concerned the intersection of mathematical elasticity and geometric algorithms.

(My last name is pronounced /’sæ.nǝn/, rhyming with “cannon”.)
