2016 Fellow

Johann Dahm

Department of Aerospace Engineering


Johann Dahm was selected as the 2016-17 fellow for the J. Robert Beyster Computational Innovation Graduate Fellows Program. Johann was a Ph.D. candidate in Aerospace Engineering and Scientific Computing and a member of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Research Group. Johann's research focused on developing novel adaptive algorithms for simulating fluid dynamics problems that involve shock waves and other non-equilibrium phenomena. As a Beyster Fellow, he advanced the state-of-the-art hybridized discontinuous Galerkin (DG) finite element methods. 

After graduating in the Spring of 2017, Johann became a post-doctoral scientist at IBM Research where he develops efficient algorithms for parallel computing on emerging architectures.
