Our group studies the dynamics of complex flows through integrated approaches combining physics-based modeling, high-performance computing and data science, software engineering, control, and companion experiments, with emphasis on rocket propulsion and hypersonics. We are also interested in cyberphysical integration - effectively connecting computers and real-world devices - for assimilation and optimization of complex engineering systems.
