Computational Fluid Dynamics
Researchers in Computational Fluid Dynamics


Jeff Borggaard
Professor Borggaard studies the design and control of fluids. This includes computational fluid dynamics, control theory, optimization, sensitivity analysis, uncertainty quantification, and reducedorder models. In each case, the application of these research areas to partial differential equations that describe fluids are of interest.


Matthias Chung
Professor Chung's research concerns computational methods in the intersection of computational modeling, machine learning, data analytics with an emphasis on inverse problems. Driven by its application, he and his group develop and analyze efficient numerical methods for inverse problems. Applications of interest are, but not limited to, systems biology, medical and geophysical imaging, and dynamical systems.



Tao Lin
Professor Tao Lin's main research interest is the numerical analysis on computational methods related with differential equations. He designs new numerical methods and carry out their convergence analysis. His recent research focuses on immersed finite element (IFE) methods that can solve interface problems of partial differential equation with interface independent meshes. He is also working on applying IFE methods to interface inverse problems via the shape optimization methodology.


Tim Warburton
Professor Warburton holds the John K. Costain Chair in the College of Science at Virginia Tech and is a faculty member of both the Department of Mathematics and the Computational Modeling and Data Analytics program. His research interests include developing new parallel algorithms and methods that are used to solve PDE based physical modes on the largest supercomputers.



Layne T. Watson
Dr. Watson's research interests include numerical analysis; nonlinear programming; mathematical software; solid mechanics; fluid mechanics; image processing; parallel computation; bioinformatics.


Pengtao Yue
Professor Yue works on the numerical simulation of flow problems with moving boundaries and complex rheology, including multiphase flow, viscoelastic fluids, dynamic wetting, and phase change phenomena.
