Invited Presentation 9 Chair: John B. Bell, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Phillip Colella, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley
Phillip Colella received his A.B. (1973), M.A. (1976) and Ph.D. (1979) degrees from the University of California, Berkeley, all in applied mathematics. Dr. Colella spent six years as a staff scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and from 1986 to 1989 was the Group Leader for the Applied Mathematics Group at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. He is currently a Professor in the Mechanical Engineering department at University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Colella's research interests are principally concerned with the development of advanced numerical algorithms for solving fluid dynamics problems, and the application of such algorithms in the investigation of fundamental phenomena in fluid dynamics, and in support of large-scale engineering applications. He is a recipient of a PYI award from the National Science Foundation.
