Research Overview

Dr. Stanley Ling's research is focused on high-fidelity modeling and simulation of a wide variety of multiphase flows and heat transfer, including atomization and sprays, particle-laden flows, compressible two-phase flows, microfluidics, among many others.  His research group utilizes the state-of-the-art high-performance computing facilities to perform large-scale simulations to investigate the complex physics involved in multiphase flows and to develop reduced-order modeling through physics-based and data-driven approaches.
