Biography

Alex Mahalov is exploring next generation multi-scale earth system models with applications to climate change and its effect on energy, environment, urban ecology, air quality, and food-energy-water systems. The mathematical tools involve Navier-Stokes and Maxwell’s equations which are the fundamental equations used to study fluid flow and electric/magnetic fields in science and engineering applications including remote sensing, imaging and communication. Particular emphasis is given to how these equations can be used to study processes that rapidly and randomly change with time and location. These more complex models can now be analyzed more accurately through advances in computing and data science. The scientific payoff of his research encompasses advances in fundamental mathematical knowledge as well as a deepening of our understanding of environmental, agricultural, atmospheric and space sciences.
