Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Chemical Engineering
BioMy research interests include computational mathematics, parallel algorithms, soft matter, complex fluids and statistical physics. During my graduate work, using polymer field theory and level set methods, I developed shape optimization algorithms for predicting the phases of polymeric materials with a free surface. My current post-doctoral research focuses on developing parallel algorithms for large-scale particle systems with hydrodynamic interactions toward the simulation of colloidal gels and glass.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Environmental Complexity Lab studies self-organization in a variety of complex systems, ranging from turbulent fluid flows to granular materials to collective motion in animal groups. In all cases, we aim to characterize the macroscopic behavior, understand its origin in the microscopic dynamics, and ultimately harness it for engineering applications. Most of our projects are experimental, though we also use numerical simulation and mathematical modeling when appropriate. We specialize in high-speed, detailed imaging and statistical analysis.
Our current research includes studies of turbulence in two and three dimensions, with a focus on coherent structures and the geometry of turbulence; the transport of inertial, anisotropic, and active particles in turbulence; the erosion of granular beds by fluid flows and subsequent sediment transport; quantitative measurements of collective behavior in insect swarms and bird flocks; the stability of ocean ecosystems; neural signal processing; and uncovering the natural, self-organized spatiotemporal scales in urban systems.
