Brian A. Lockwood

Hello and welcome to my academic website. My name is Brian Lockwood and I am a former Ph.D. student at the University of Wyoming in the mechanical engineering department. My work was supported by a Department of Energy Computational Graduate Fellowship and was performed under the supervision of Dr. Dimitri J. Mavriplis. The area of my Ph.D. research was computational fluid dynamics with a specific focus on rapid uncertainty quantification for hypersonic flows using gradient-based methods. I am currently working for CD-Adapco as a software developer in their Lebanon, NH office.
