THE DEPARTMENT OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING AND THE GEOPHYSICAL FLUID DYNAMICS INSTITUTE ARE NOW OFFERING A PH.D. IN FIRE DYNAMICS

This major involves mathematical modeling, fluid dynamics, and environmental factors dealing with wildland and prescribed fires.

  • Students are offered Elective Courses in Engineering, Geological Sciences, Mathematics, Meteorology, Oceanography, Physics, Statistics, and Scientific Computing.
  • Fire Dynamics students can work with our diverse faculty in GFDI (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute), EOAS (Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences), and/or Scientific Computing.

Scientific Computing Faculty and Their Research Interests:

Dr. Gordon Erlebacher
(computational fluid dynamics, turbulent flow, data visualization)

Dr. Anke Meyer-Baese
(data mining, image analysis, data analytics)

Dr. Tomasz Plewa
(computational fluid dynamics, astrophysical plasma dynamics, data analytics)
