Dr. Tan Bui-Thanh obtained his PhD in computational fluid dynamics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2007. He was a postdoc at MIT and then a research scientist at the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, UT Austin. He was an assistant professor, and then an associated professor at Oden Institute and the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, UT Austin. Dr. Bui-Thanh was a recipient of the Moncrief Grand Challenges Faculty Award in 2014 and 2019, of the Distinguished Research Award 2019, and of the NSF Career Award 2019. He has been keynote and plenary speakers at various international conferences and workshops.

Dr. Bui-Thanh is a computational engineer and applied mathematician (with applications in computational fluid dynamics, wave propagations, solid mechanics, plasma physics and geophysics) and his research spans across different areas of Computational Engineering, Sciences, and Mathematics including model order reduction, PDE-constrained optimization, high-order finite element methods, parallel computing, statistical inverse problems, uncertainty quantification, data reduction methods, and model-aware machine learning.
