Kyongmin Yeo




 Welcome !

I am a Research Scientist at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY.

My research interests are focused on, but not limited to, understanding natural and engineering multiscale flow phenomena, such as turbulent flows, multiphase flows, granular media, biological flows, to name a few. Currently, I am working on multiscale physics modeling and uncertainty quantification of urban dispersion as well as suspensions of active particles. During my graduate study, I have studied the physics of solid-fluid multiphase system, Lagrangian dynamics in Stokes, finite-inertia, and turbulent flows for a wide range of volume fractions - dilute to near-maximum-packing limit, and rheology. After Brown, I spent one and a half year at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab., working with Prof. David Romps on a Lagrangian method to analyse deep convecting clouds. As I have the negation aura field, I chose numerical simulations over experiments. I usually enjoy taking some time off while my simulations are running. So, I prefer large scale simulations, which helped me familiar with parallel and high performance computing. I am experienced in both C++ and FORTRAN90 with MPI / OpenMP.
