Research Interests 

Dr. Khosronejad's research interests consist of three interconnected areas:

(1) Develop high–performance computing tools: A part of Dr. Khosronejad's research work focuses on basic research to develop and improve novel, multi-resolution and multi-physics computational fluid dynamics algorithms that run over supercomputer clusters. He endeavors to develop numerical algorithms for: a) fluid-structure interaction modeling; b) immersed boundary methods; c) coupled turbulent flow and sediment transport; d) large-eddy simulation (LES) of turbulent atmospheric & aquatic flows, free-surface & bubbly flows, density current & stratified flows, turbulent flows over natural and engineered rough surfaces, and transport and mixing of particles and conservative/non-conservative contaminants in natural riverine and coastal areas.

(2) Apply simulation–based engineering tools: Dr. Khosronejad strives to employ his already developed simulation–based engineering science as a powerful tool for tackling tpday’s interdisciplinary scientific problems that are at the intersection of fluid mechanics and computational science.

(3) Dr. Khosronejad's research approach also emphasizes simulation-driven experimentation and physics-driven computational modeling. Hence, he is actively involved in experimental fluid mechanics and collaborates with experimentalists nationally and internationally.
