    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 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.
