Research Statement:

 

My research dealt with developing robust Multiscale Large Eddy Simulation procedures for the simulation of compressible turbulent flows on moving meshes. My research interests included: computational mechanics, fluid-structure-interaction, turbulence modeling, large eddy simulation of turbulence and vibration control of structures.
