Visiting Associate Professor

Research Interests 

  • Development of fast sorting and tracking algorithms to control large systems of interacting objects (air traffic, swarms of UAVs, space debris)
  • Aerothermodynamics of hypersonic vehicles, such as computation of the neutral and plasma flowfield surrounding ballistic missile reentry vehicles
  • Calculation of large-scale ionospheric disturbances from Space Shuttle engine plumes
  • Expertise in parallel processing for large-scale scientific computing of rarefied flows (direct simulation Monte Carlo) and continuum flows (Navier-Stokes)
  • Algorithm development for data mining applications
