Professor P.K. Yeung has been an active researcher in both domain science (fluid turbulence) and high-performance computing. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University in 1989, and joined the faculty of Georgia Tech in 1992, where he is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering (since 2005) and also holds a joint appointment in Mechanical Engineering. Professor Yeung's research is focused on massive computations of turbulence motivated by needs for both new physical insights and advancements in theory and modeling. The topics of his work have included fine-scale intermittency, mixing, dispersion, and more recently studies of turbulence subjected to electromagnetic and buoyancy forces. Professor Yeung's research has received sustained support from the Fluid Dynamics as well advanced cyberinfrastruture programs of the National Science Foundation, and various national supercomputer centers where over a billion core hours have enabled computations on the order of 1 trillion grid points and beyond. He has received three successive INCITE resource allocations (2017-2019) administered by the US Department of Energy Office of Science. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society , and of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
