Congratulations to Dr. Venkat Raman for his promotion to Aerospace Engineering Full Professor!
Dr. Raman focuses on the development of computational models for turbulent reacting flows with application to aircraft and scramjet engines, stationary power generation, and synthesis of novel materials. His research group uses high performance supercomputers and detailed numerical simulations to study the performance of combustion devices. Recently, his focus has been in the areas of numerical error analysis, uncertainty quantification, and failure predictions, aimed towards modeling catastrophic and rare events in complex devices and natural systems.
Raman received an NSF CAREER award in 2008, a distinguished paper award at the International Combustion Symposium in 2013, and the Moncrief Grand Challenge Award in 2013. He held the Eli. H and Ramona Thornton Centennial Fellow in Engineering at UT Austin from 2013-2014.
