Ann Almgren is a senior scientist and the Group Lead of the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering in the Applied Math Department. Her primary research interest is in computational algorithms for solving PDE’s for fluid dynamics in a variety of application areas. Her current projects include the development and implementation of new multiphysics algorithms in high-resolution adaptive mesh codes that are designed for the latest multicore architectures.  She is a SIAM Fellow and serves on the editorial boards of CAMCoS and SIREV.  Prior to coming to LBL she worked at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, and at Lawrence LIvermore National Lab.

Research Interests

  • Low Mach number modeling of Type Ia Supernovae (see MAESTRO)
  • Development of an adaptive-grid Eulerian solver for compressible astrophysical flows (see CASTRO)
  • Development of a new N-body hydro cosmology code (see NYX)
  • And more generally, adaptive projection methods for incompressible and low Mach number flows (see IAMR)
