We are looking for new PhD students. Check out the Opportunities
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Memphis in the area of computational fluid dynamics and materials science with applications to cavitation and multi-phase flows.
The Army Research Office awarded us a new three year project on developing a network theoretic model for energy transfer in vortex-dominated flows.
We are starting a new project on modeling the effects of turbulence on optics through the atmospheric boundary layer. We using LES and atmospheric observations to improve and quantify the uncertainty in power surges and fades, spatial incoherence, and beam wander. The project is in collaboration with Dr. Eddie Jacobs in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Funding is through our partners at the University of Central Florida and the Army Research Lab.
In collaboration with Drs. Ranganathan Gopalakrishnan and Alex Headley in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we were recently awarded a Research Development and Partnership Pilot (RDPP) grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) starting September 1, 2022. The project is entitled “Building partnerships for development of sustainable energy systems with atmospheric measurements,” and is an Atmospheric System Research (ASR) activity within the Earth and Environmental Systems Science Division (EESSD) of the Department of Energy’s Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program.
