About me...

My research is in computer simulations of fluid dynamic problems with applications to energy generation, propulsion, aerodynamics. I am interested in uncertainy analysis and computational mathematics.
I teach classes in fluid dynamics, numerical methods, linear algebra, uncertainty analysis...
I direct the Exascale Computing Engineering Center , the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (with Margot Gerritsen), the Thermal Fluid Science Affiliates Program and the Uncertainty Quantification Laboratory
I am an associate editor of the Journal of Computational Physics , the Applied Mechanics Review and Flow, Turbulence and Combustion
