Research Interests

    • Turbulence and laminar-turbulent transition modeling and simulation: high- and reduced-order RANS closures, DNS, data-driven models, multi-model predictions.
    • Uncertainty quantification based on RANS-DNS simulations, sensitivity analysis, and Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence; decision-making under uncertainty.
    • Bio-inspired designs: rotors/props, wind-energy harvesters, power system layouts.
    • Survivability analysis: power systems and biological networks.


    • U.S. Patent 7652396 "Systems and Methods for Improving the Ability of a Power Delivery System to Withstand Failure Events"
    • Non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual license from the Florida State University for software “Power System Graph Converter v.0” developed by D. Neumayr and S. V. Poroseva.
