Lina Baroudi

My research interests are primarily concerned with the development and application of high performance computational methods to study physical systems and engineering problems in fluid mechanics area, with a particular focus on complex multiphase and multicomponent flows, and to provide insight into physical systems that may be difficult or impossible to discover through real-world experimental and theoretical analysis.
