    Marta D'Elia

    Adjunct Professor, Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME)

    BioI’m a research/computational scientist working on the design and analysis of models and data-driven algorithms for the simulation of complex, multiscale and multiphysics problems. My background and training have foundations in Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, Inverse Problems, Control and Optimization, and Uncertainty Quantification. In the past five years I have focused on Scientific Machine Learning (SciML) and Deep Learning. I am an expert in Nonlocal/Fractional Modeling and Simulation (10 years) with application to Continuum Mechanics, Subsurface Transport, Image Processing, and Turbulence. I have a master's degree in Mathematical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (2007) and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Emory University (2011).

  • Stefan P. Domino

    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 elucidation, numerical methods research, V&V techniques exploration, and high performance computing and coding methods for turbulent flow applications. Stefan also supports the 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.

    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.
