Stefan P. Domino
Adjunct Professor, Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME)
BioDr. Domino’s research interest rests within low-Mach fluid mechanics methods development for complex systems that drive the coupling of mass, momentum, species and energy transport. His core research resides within the intersection of physics model development, numerical methods research, V&V techniques exploration, and high performance computing and coding methods for low-Mach turbulent flow applications. Stefan also supports the co-teaching of ME469, Computational Methods in Fluid Mechanics, while continuing his primary career at Sandia National Laboratories as a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff.

Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences
BioDavid Donoho is a mathematician who has made fundamental contributions to theoretical and computational statistics, as well as to signal processing and harmonic analysis. His algorithms have contributed significantly to our understanding of the maximum entropy principle, of the structure of robust procedures, and of sparse data description.
My theoretical research interests have focused on the mathematics of statistical inference and on theoretical questions arising in applying harmonic analysis to various applied problems. My applied research interests have ranged from data visualization to various problems in scientific signal processing, image processing, and inverse problems.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy lab’s research focuses on computational biology, with an emphasis on 3D molecular structure. We combine two approaches: (1) Bottom-up: given the basic physics governing atomic interactions, use simulations to predict molecular behavior; (2) Top-down: given experimental data, use machine learning to predict molecular structures and properties. We collaborate closely with experimentalists and apply our methods to the discovery of safer, more effective drugs.
