A Short Course in San Diego, California

Short-Course Instructors

Yuri Bazilevs

Dr. Bazilevs received his PhD from University of Texas at Austin in 2006, and he is currently an Associate Professor in Department of Structural Engineering at University of California, San Diego. He has been conducting computational fluid mechanics research since 2000, teaching classes on that subject since 2008, and has been conducting computational fluid–structure interaction research since 2005. He has published over 70 journal papers on computational fluid and structural mechanics and, fluid–structure interaction. He coauthored a book on isogeometric analysis, a technique that is now widely used in computational fluid and structural mechanics, and fluid–structure interaction. He coauthored a textbook titled Computational Fluid–Structure Interaction: Methods and Applications, published by Wiley. He is an Assistant Editor of Springer journal Computational Mechanics for the manuscripts on computational fluid mechanics and fluid–structure interaction.
