Kris Rowe

Assistant Computational Scientist
630-252-3398

An applied mathematician by training, Kris completed both his bachelor's degree and PhD at the University of Waterloo --- with research focusing on geophysical fluid dynamics, high-order methods for incompressible flows, and adaptive mesh refinement. During his post doc, Kris went undercover in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Cornell to study the internal gravity waves radiated by stratified turbulent wakes, and designed fast algorithms for high-order methods. Having a passion for education, Kris has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in linear algebra, vector calculus, numerical analysis, and high-order methods for CFD to engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians alike.
