About CEPL


Research Mission

  • To design future engineering systems and interfaces of energy, water, and particles by using statistical physics and high-performance supercomputing.

Position open

  • Two positions for graduate research assistants are currently open. Contact me: albertsk@hawaii.edu.

  1. Computational fluid-particle dynamics (CFPD) in the Lagrangian picture
    1. Particle dynamics: dissipative hydrodynamics (DHD)
    2. Fluid dynamics: OpenFOAM (vs. smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH))
  2. Coupled and complex transport phenomena
    1. Granular particle dynamics in natural and engineered systems
    2. Thermally renewable processes: Membrane distillation
  3. High-Performance Computing (research methods)
