Postdoctoral Researcher, Computational Research Division
Affiliation and Research Interests
I am a postdoctoral researcher
(advisor: John B. Bell)
in the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE)
in the Computational Research Division (CRD)
of the Computing Sciences Directorate
at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
My research project at the Lab is to develop numerical methods for nanoscale fluids using fluctuating hydrodynamics. More specifically, I have been incorporating an accurate mesoscopic description of reactions into fluctuating hydrodynamics.
As a first step, I have developed efficient and robust numerical methods for stochastic reaction-diffusion systems, where the rigor of the master equation approach for reactions and the efficiency of the fluctuating hydrodynamics approach for diffusion are combined.
Currently, I am incorporating reactions into full fluctuating hydrodyanmics. The animation below is my recent simulation result for the asymmetric fingering with the neutralization reaction.
