Mechanical Engineering- Flow Physics and Computation
Gianluca Iaccarino's research is in computer simulations of fluid dynamic problems with applications to energy generation, propulsion, aerodynamics. He is interested in uncertainty analysis and computational mathematics. Gianluca teaches classes in fluid dynamics, numerical methods, linear algebra and uncertainty analysis. He directs 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. Gianluca is also an associate editor of the Journal of Computational Physics , the Applied Mechanics Review and Flow, Turbulence and Combustion.
