BioMy research interests include computational mathematics, parallel algorithms, soft matter and stochastic calculus. During my PhD, using polymer field theory and level set methods, I developed shape optimization algorithms for predicting the phases of polymeric materials with a free surface. I recently developed parallel algorithms on distributed memory architecture for Accelerated Stokesian Dynamics (ASD) to simulate large-scale stochastic particle systems correlated through hydrodynamic interactions. I currently try to embed modern machine learning techniques to exploit the data generated by ASD simulations. I am also interested in stochastic calculus theory and applications.

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.
