Prior Degrees:
M.S. (2016) – Computational Science, Engineering, & Mathematics; The University of Texas-Austin
M.S. (2013) -- Mechanical Engineering; Purdue University
B.S. (2011) – Applied Mathematics, Engineering, and Physics; University of Wisconsin-Madison

Research focus:
My research focuses on Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) of the reacting, turbulent jet for the purpose of interrogating Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) models for turbulent combustion. The simulations are designed such that the model error from the turbulence and the turbulence-chemistry interaction closures is isolated from the error arising from the chemical kinetics. A better understanding of these errors will aid in the development of model inadequacy representations for RANS combustion models.
