Carothers Garde Keblinski Kilduff
Chris Carothers studies reverse computation in the simulation and modeling of large-scale networks. His research will lead to more effective Internet traffic management and congestion control. Shekhar Garde develops computer simulation tools for understanding and modeling how biological molecules self-assemble in water-based solutions, important in developing a host of biotechnology and pharmaceutical applications. Pawel Keblinski models the effect of interfaces on mechanical properties of polycrystalline diamond—a process essential to designing nanoscale materials. Yuri Lvov is seeking to improve weak turbulence theory, which predicts how energy in complex systems such as the ocean will behave over time. Understanding these complexities will eventually lead to more accurate weather prediction, which could have implications for such things as the economy, farming, and tourism.
