Research Assistant Professor, Ph.D., 2004
Stony Brook University: Computational Applied Mathematics
Yan Yu's primary research area is in the field of computational fluid dynamics. Key
areas include: analyzing chaotic flow fields of turbulent mixing, uncertainty quantification,
numerical simulations of fluid interface instabilities such as the Rayleigh-Taylor
instability and the Richtmyer-Meshkov instability. Her research has involved collaborations
with scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory.
She is also the SPIR coordinator of the department.
