Bruce Boghosian is a professor in the Department of Mathematics and an adjunct professor in the Department of Computer Science. He received a B.S. in Physics and an M.S. in Nuclear Engineering from MIT, and a Ph.D. in Applied Science and Engineering from the University of California, Davis. His research focuses on theoretical and computational fluid dynamics, with emphasis on an improved understanding of fluid turbulence. Previously, he was a research associate professor at Boston University and a Senior Scientist at Thinking Machines Corporation in Cambridge, MA.
Boghosian's research interests includes computational fluid dynamics, the dynamical systems approach to fluid dynamics, lattice models of fluid dynamics, topological fluid dynamics, and vortex dynamics in two and three dimensions.
