Timothy Smith

First year, Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
General interests: Timothy's interests are in developing and applying computational algorithms for efficient modeling of complex scientific and engineering problems. Currently, he is investigating new techniques for the computational solution of disperse flows consisting of particles suspended in a carrier gas or liquid. His goal is to expand and continue theoretical developments and their implementation in an efficient code to model a disperse flow.
