Assad Anshuman Oberai

Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs and Professor, School of Engineering

Assad Oberai received his PhD. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1998. His doctoral work involved developing accurate and efficient finite element methods for solving time-harmonic, wave propagation problems in unbounded domains. As a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford University he developed multiscale formulations of large eddy simulation for modeling turbulent flows and numerical methods for predicting noise generated by such flows. In 2001, Dr. Oberai joined Boston University as an Assistant Professor and in 2006 he moved to the Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering Department at RPI. Here, he continues to work on numerical methods for problems with multiple scales and inverse problems.
