Boundary Layer, Urban Meteorology and Land-Surface Processes Seminar Series: Speaker

Large-eddy simulation of rough wall turbulence: effects of complex topography, evidence of inner-outer effects, and the role of turbulence in aeolian systems

William Anderson

Mechanical Engineering Department, The University of Texas at Dallas

Anderson received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University in July 2011. He began as a tenure-track faculty in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Baylor University in Fall 2011, and moved to the University of Texas at Dallas in Fall 2014. His research interests focus on rough wall turbulent flows; this has relevance to planetary boundary layers, aerospace engineering, and mechanical engineering. His research activities are currently supported by the Army Research Office (ARO), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Texas General Land Office (TGLO). He is a 2014 recipient of the AFOSR Young Investigator Program award.
