Anthony Walker

PhD student

Anthony is a PhD Student in Mechanical Engineering with interests in Thermal-Fluid Sciences and Computer Science. He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science from Penn State.

He has worked on improving computational efficiency of HPC simulations by implementation of the heterogeneous swept rule in two spatial dimensions for thermal-fluid science applications. A technique designed to reduce the cost of latency on distributed computing systems.

His current research is focused on extending some the numerical capabilities of Cantera—an open source suite of chemical kinetics and thermodynamics tools. Once finished, his goal is to apply these new tools to resolve atmospheric chemistry with large chemical mechanisms.
