    Course Instructors:

    Dr. Ugo Piomelli is a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Computational Turbulence, and the HPCVL-Sun Microsystems Chair in Computational Science and Engineering in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He obtained his DrEng degree from the University of Naples in Italy, an MS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Notre Dame and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. He has published over 60 refereed journal articles, in the fields of turbulence and transition modelling and simulation. His work has been cited over 3,700 times. He was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2002, of the Institute of Physics (UK) in 2004 and of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 2009. He was also elected Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2004.

    Dr. Fernando Grinstein has been a Scientist at LANL since 2005. He served as Research Physicist at NRL-DC between 1983-2005. He is Associate Fellow of AIAA. He served as AIAA Fluid Dynamics TC Chair (2003-2005), ASME JFE Associate Editor (2002-2007), AIAA Journal Guest Editor (2004, 2006). He has authored, "Implicit LES: Computing Turbulent Flow Dynamics", Cambridge UP, 2010.

    Dr. Jack R. Edwards is currently Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at North Carolina State University. He obtained his B.S (1988), M.S. (1990) and Ph.D. (1993) degrees from North Carolina State University. He is a Senior Member of AIAA and a member of the Combustion Institute. His current research efforts are in computational fluid dynamics algorithm development, transition and turbulence modeling, high-speed combustion / propulsion and reactive and multiphase flows, under sponsorship from NASA, Sandia National Labs, Taitech, Inc., U.S. EPA, and Dow Chemical Company. Prior to joining NCSU, he was a Research Scientist at High Technology Corporation, in Hampton, VA.
