George focuses primarily on addressing key technological barriers to the deployment of feature-resolving high-fidelity simulation techniques for real-world problems, such as transport aircrafts, wind farms, gas turbines, and transport of fine dust and pollutants in atmosphere. He aims at building a predictive but affordable framework for computation of turbulent flows characterized by complex wall geometry, high Reynolds number, compressibility effect, and heat transfer. His work involves developing physics-based and empiricism-free models of computationally demanding physics components, with emphasis on their extension to unstructured-grid flow solvers and emerging exascale computing platforms. George's recent research also includes non-equilibrium turbulent boundary layers and multiphase flows.
