COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS / HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago under the supervision of Dr. Farzad Mashayek. I currently work in the Computational Multiphase Transport Laboratory developing numerical algorithms for high-order h/p element method codes. Prior to my numerical research, I worked in the Spray and Atomization Laboratory performing experiments on electrostatic charge injection methods.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

A majority of my work has focused on developing models and algorithms for use in high order numerical codes for the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations. Current research is focused on the simulation of the AFRL Scramjet using large eddy simulation by means of a Discontinuous Spectral Element Method code in conjunction with the Filtered Mass Density Function methodology for high-speed combustion.

I have much experience developing in-house high-order codes as opposed to using commercially available software
