Vladimir Tomov is a computational mathematician at the Center for Applied Scientific Computing. His research interests include finite element methods for multi-material ALE and radiation hydrodynamics, high-order mesh optimization. Vladimir is leading a R&D project about accurate treatment of curved material interfaces and boundary conditions, and is the original developer of the Laghos and Remhos miniapps. He is also involved in the ETHOS, MFEMBLAST and CEED projects.

Vladimir joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2014 after earning a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Texas A&M University. The topic of his dissertation was Entropy Viscosity Method for Lagrangian Hydrodynamics and Central Schemes for Mean Field Games.
