Dr. Larsson has broad interests within the fields of fluid mechanics, turbulence, and predictive computational science. His interests range from the very fundamental to the rather applied: his ideal research question is one which solves a highly applied problem through a rigorous and creative fundamental approach. Large-scale simulations on thousands of processors are an important tool in this research, enabling detailed turbulence simulations or quantification of simulation uncertainties. Current project topics include: enabling large eddy simulation to be applied at realistic (high) Reynolds numbers through approximate wall-modeling; developing grid-adaptation techniques for turbulence simulations; developing physics-based uncertainty quantification approaches; and hypersonic turbulent flows.
