Dear Mr. Kannan,

This is Shi Jin, a postdoc at University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. We have been using PETSc for years for our finite element CFD code. Currently I am developing a new code with the petsc-dev to have unstructured grid enabled parallel computing. I am interested in the kind of collaborations you are proposing. Do you have more details?

Thank you very much.
Shi Jin, PhD

PS. Do you know Sarma Rani at your company? He was a postdoc in my PhD group at Cornell. If so, please delivery my greetings.
