Jeremy Melvin

Postdoctoral Fellow Predictive Engineering and Computational Sciences

Biography

Dr. Jeremy Melvin completed his Ph.D. at Stony Brook University in Computational Applied Mathematics in August 2016. He was the recipient of an Oden Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship from 2016-18. His work is performed under the supervision of Professor Robert Moser.

Jeremy's research interests are on turbulence modeling and computational fluid dynamics. His focus at the Oden Institute is on the development of turbulence models for Hybrid RANS/LES simulations of wind farms. His past research has focused on the development of simulation models designed to improve agreement in simulations relative to experiments of Inertial Confinement Fusion. His work has also focused on the use of front tracking for numerical simulations of hydrodynamic instabilities such as Rayleigh-Taylor and Richtmyer-Meshkov.
