Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment. Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Applied and Computational Mathematics. Director, Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
Research Area Research group studies gas dynamics in a wide variety of astrophysical systems: from protostars to clusters of galaxies, mostly using numerical methods. As part of this effort, the group develops, tests, and applies numerical algorithms for astrophysical gas dynamics on high-performance computers.
Research Area Primary research areas are in theoretical & computational seismology. Research topics include: surface waves, free oscillations, and body waves, seismic tomography, numerical simulations of 3-D wave propagation, and seismic hazard assessment.
