Bio

Per-Olof Persson has been an assistant professor of mathematics at UC Berkeley since 2008, and he is also an affiliate in the Mathematics Group at LBNL, and the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. Between 2005 and 2008, Persson was an instructor of applied mathematics at MIT. His current research interests are in high-order methods for fluid and solid mechanics, and in particular techniques based on the discontinuous Galerkin method. Persson developed the 3DG software package based on new discretization techniques and efficient solvers, which can be applied to problems in aerodynamics and solid dynamics, such as aero-acoustics, biologically inspired flapping flight, wind turbines, and micro-mechanical devices.
