• Highly self-motivated researcher with 5+ years of experience focused at Computational Fluid Dynamics.

• Skilled in Fortran programming for Large Eddy Simulation with solid mathematical background for turbulence modeling and conventional computational methods like finite difference, finite element and finite volume; Familiar with RANS, C/C++ programming and high performance computing.

• Quick learner with excellent problem-solving and team work skills. RESEARCH EXPERIENCES

2015 – 2018 A Langevin Subgrid Scale Closure and Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) Exascale Large Eddy Simulation

(LES) of Complex Turbulent Flows Project supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) Advisor: Dr. Peyman Givi

• Combined the DG method (which combines the benefits of FEM and FVM) with a subgrid scale closure and demonstrated the capability of DG method for LES of turbulent combustion and shock capturing through a Fortran based solver;

• Assessed the effects of grid resolution, the filter width size and the order of spectral discretiza- tion, as well as the precidtive capability via comparison with Direct Numerical Simulation data. 2012 – 2014 Heat transfer and Flow of Slag-type Non-linear Fluids Advisor: Dr. Mehrdad Massoudi & Dr. Nadine Aubry

• Proposed a new constitutive relation for the stress tensor modeling non-linear fluids; Derived correlations of the thermal conductivity based on the experimental data which depends on the shear rate and temperature;

• Solved numerically in MATLAB; Performed parametric study for the effects of several dimen- sionless numbers and thermal conductivity on velocity, volume fraction and temperature of the fully developed flow of a viscoelastic fluid.

2010 – 2011 Research of Finite Differences of Two-dimensional Turbulence Advisor: Prof. Shilong Lan

• Applied DNS of two-dimensional isotropic turbulence with the Arakawa finite difference scheme to solve the Navier-Stokes equations;

• Studied the decaying of the intergral energy and enstrophy, double cascade and the scaling laws in the wave number space, the distribution of vortex field and the evolution of vortex. SKILLS
