The main purpose of this talk is to describe, by way of a concrete example, how the field of numerical relativity contributes to our understanding of asymptotically AdS spacetimes. I will begin by motivating these studies in terms of gauge/gravity duality, heavy ion physics, and gravitational collapse. I will then describe in detail preliminary results from a first study of gravitational collapse in AdS with inhomogeneous deformations away from spherical symmetry, which explicitly demonstrate that the evolution to smaller spatial scales that leads to black hole formation persists in the non-spherically symmetric setting.
