Affiliation and Research Interests

Aaron is a research scientist in the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computing Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Aaron is broadly interested in efficient solution methods for partial differential equations (PDEs) and statistical mechanics. Currently, Aaron focuses on the simulation of atmospheric and multiphase flows. Aaron is a core developer of the Energy Research and Forcasting (ERF) software, a next-generation atmospheric modeling code. Additionally, Aaron contributes to the development of MFIX-Exa, an exa-scale enabled multiphase flow solver that employs the discrete element method. Prior to joining LBNL, Aaron held a postdoctoral appointments in the department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan (supervised by Prof. Jesse Capecelatro) as well as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. Aaron's PhD was earned at the University of Colorado (supervised by Prof. Christine Hrenya) and his undergraduate studies were completed at the University of Washington.
