Wednesday Plenary Session
Computational Experiments in Turbulent Flows: From Numerics to Improved Modeling
Sanjiva Lele is Edward C. Wells Professor in the School of Engineering at Stanford University with appointments in Aeronautics & Astronautics, and Mechanical Engineering. His research embraces studies of unsteady flows, instabilities and transition, turbulence in high-speed flows, aeroacoustics, multiphase flows and wind energy. He is also interested in developing numerical methods and improved modeling of turbulence. Dr. Lele received his B.Tech from IIT Kanpur, PhD from Cornell, and postdoctoral training at NASA Ames/Center for Turbulence Research.
He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and Associate fellow of the AIAA. He served as Associate Editor for the Journal of Fluid Mechanics during 1994-2004, and is currently Associate Editor for Physical Review Fluids.
