Affiliated PhD graduate
Nick completed his PhD in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Connecticut, advised by Prof. Chih-Jen Sung. He works on methods to reduce the computational cost of incorporating detailed chemical kinetics in multidimensional combustion simulations, including dynamic adaptive chemistry and GPU-based chemistry integration.
