Michael L. Minion
Staff Scientist


Michael received his PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1994 under the supervision of Prof. Alexandre Chorin. After a post-doctoral position at the Courant Institute, NYU, he joined the faculty in the Department of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, where he remained until 2012. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2012, Michael has been working at LBNL and was affiliated with the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford from 2012-2017, first as a Consulting Professor and later an Adjunct Professor.

Research Interests

  • Adaptive methods for fluid dynamics
  • Novel temporal integration schemes for PDEs
  • Space-time Parallel Algorithms
  • Real Time-Time Dependent Density Functional Theory
