Yanfei Jiang wins 2012 Ray Grimm prize
Graduate student Yanfei Jiang has been awarded a Ray Grimm prize in
computational physics for 2012.
He is cited "for developing, implementing and testing
advanced numerical algorithms for radiation magnetohydrodynamics on
parallel high-performance computing systems, and for applying
these methods to ab initio studies of magnetized accretion flows
around black holes".
Mr Jiang is carrying out his thesis work with James M. Stone.
The Ray Grimm prize is awarded by Princeton's graduate school in
recognition of outstanding research achievements in computational
physics. The prize was established in 1986 by friends of Ray Grimm,
and Cray research in honor of Ray Grimm, a popular teacher and
mentor of many graduate students.
