Mechanical Engineering & the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME), Stanford University.
I am an Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) here at Stanford. I am Italian (from Sorrento, in south of Italy) and moved to Stanford in 1998. My research is in computer simulations of fluid dynamic problems with applications to energy generation, propulsion, aerodynamics. I am interested in uncertainy analysis and computational mathematics. I teach classes in fluid dynamics, numerical methods, linear algebra, uncertainty analysis... I direct the Exascale Computing Engineering Center, the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (with Margot Gerritsen), the Thermal Fluid Science Affiliates Program and the Uncertainty Quantification Laboratory I am an associate editor of the Journal of Computational Physics, the Applied Mechanics Review and Flow, Turbulence and Combustion.
Extremely powerful computers with up to 100,000 processors have enabled unprecedented numerical simulations that are pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Join Prof. Gianluca Iaccarino as he
