Dr. San has been an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at OSU since 2015. He received his bachelors in aeronautical engineering from Istanbul Technical University in 2005, his masters in aerospace engineering from Old Dominion University in 2007, and his Ph.D. in engineering mechanics from Virginia Tech in 2012. He worked as a postdoc at Virginia Tech from 2012-'14, and then from 2014-'15 at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. He is a recipient of the U.S. Department of Energy 2018 Early Career Research Program Award in Applied Mathematics. His field of study is centered upon the development, analysis and application of advanced computational methods in science and engineering with a particular emphasis on the development of hybrid physics-AI/ML methodologies in fluid dynamics across a variety of spatial and temporal scales.
