Kevin Gott (NERSC)
Kevin Gott is a Postdoctoral Fellow working with CCSE to enhance AMReX-based performance tools and optimize AMReX-based ECP codes.
Kevin graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with an MS and PhD in Mechanical Engineering. His focus was computational fluid mechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics using finite-volume, Monte Carlo and first-principles techniques. In his dissertation, he created a hybrid CFD-DSMC solver and studied its application for the modeling of physical vapor deposition technologies. He has also worked on a variety of numerical computation projects, including the thermal modeling of copper-diamond composite interfaces, anistropic heat sinks and lone star ticks.
His research interests include high performance computing, parallel computing, computational fluid dynamics, AMR techniques, ALE methods, Monte Carlo methods, manufacturing techniques, heat transfer.
