Dr. Sibendu Som is a principal computational scientist and manager of the Multi-Physics Computational Research group at Argonne National Laboratory. He has more than a decade of experience in multi-physics and multi-scale modeling of piston engines and gas turbines on High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Dr. Som’s research is focused on the development of nozzle-flow, spray, and combustion models, and applications of machine learning methods for engine combustion. His team is responsible for developing predictive simulation capabilities for industry to develop advanced high-efficiency low-emission engines. Several computational sub-models developed in his team are part of commercial computational codes. He is a co-founder of Argonne’s Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative (VERIFI) program which is aimed at providing predictive simulations for industry. Dr. Som has authored more than 150 journal and peer-reviewed conference papers with more than 4000 citations.
