Mahesh Natarajan
Computer Systems Engineer 3

I am a Computer Systems Engineer in the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computing Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I am currently working on the Energy Research and Forecasting (ERF) project on simulations of atmospheric flows in CCSE and parallel discrete events simulations for computational fluid dynamics in the Computer Architecture Group (CAG). Here are the links to my Google Scholar page and LinkedIn profile. Please visit my webpage for more info.


Mahesh Natarajan received his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Calicut in 2007, and Master's in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science in 2009. He completed his Ph.D. from the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017, and was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University until 2019. He worked as Researcher II at the Computational Science Center of National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) until 2021, and moved to the Computational Aerosciences branch of NASA Ames Research Center as an Aerospace Engineer, where he worked until 2023.
