Summary of Research

My research focuses on physics-based and data-driven modeling for computational fluid dynamics of turbulence. I'm also interested in novel approaches such as information theory for reduced-order modeling and machine learning models for wall-modeled large-eddy simulation of hypersonic vehicles.
