Brian Gunney received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering and Scientific Computing at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He did his post-doctoral work at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Minnesota.
Brian has worked to develop new upwind methods, unstructured grid generation and adaption, interactive computer graphics and high-performance computing applied to computational fluid dynamics and time-domain electromagnetic wave propagation. His interests are in methods for efficiently solving partial difference equations on high-performance computing systems.
Brian is a member of the adaptive mesh refinement project SAMRAI. He joined the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Lab in 2000.
He previously worked in the aerospace and medical devices industries. His former last name is Nguyen.
