Dr. San is an Associate Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Previously, he served as a faculty member at Oklahoma State University, where he taught graduate and undergraduate courses in engineering mathematics, computational methods, numerical analysis, data assimilation, and computational fluid dynamics. He holds a PhD in Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech. His primary research focuses on the development, analysis, and application of advanced computational methods in science and engineering, with a special emphasis on hybrid physics-AI/ML approaches in fluid dynamics, addressing methodological foundations. Dr. San received the U.S. Department of Energy 2018 Early Career Research Program Award for his work in scientific machine learning algorithms for multiscale closure modeling of turbulent flows. He has been a PI or co-PI on research grants from the DOE, NSF, NASA, ASHRAE, OCAST, the Research Council of Norway, and the NVIDIA Corporation. His work has been recognized through several awards and nominations, including the OSU 2022 Distinguished Early Career Faculty Award and CEAT 2020 Excellent Scholar Award.
