Nathan Wukie is pursuing his PhD at the University of Cincinnati supported by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program. His research areas include the development of overset discontinuous Galerkin methods, fully-implicit formulations, nonreflecting boundary conditions, computational aeroacoustics, turbomachinery applications, and software engineering.
Nathan is also a PhD student researcher at the Air Force Research Laboratory focusing on development of implicit, overset discontinuous Galerkin methods, multi-fidelity methods, and moving-grid capabilities for Air Force applications. He has also collaborated with researchers at the Naval Postgraduate School, NASA Glenn Research Center, and Chalmers University in Sweden on development of discontinuous Galerkin methods, turbomachinery applications, and nonreflecting boundary conditions.
He received a Bachelor and Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Cincinnati; focusing on bleed modeling for shockwave boundary layer interactions and computational aeroacoustics studies for predicting tone noise in turbomachinery in collaboration with GE Aviation.
Nathan is currently developing new nonreflecting boundary treatments for computational fluid dynamics and advocating for the use of software engineering best-practices in computational science applications.
