Ozgur Tumuklu

Assistant Professor
Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering
Dr. Tumuklu attained his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2018, with a specialized focus on hypersonic flow instabilities utilizing kinetic approaches. Subsequent to his doctoral studies, he engaged in a role as a postdoctoral researcher within the Artemis project at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Following his time at NASA JPL, Dr. Tumuklu directed his efforts towards the advancement of sophisticated software tools at the University of Arizona. These tools were designed to facilitate the investigation of a broad spectrum of flows, ranging from subsonic to hypersonic, and spanning the continuum to rarefied regimes.His expertise and research pursuits encompass the realm of computational physics, with a pronounced emphasis on rarefied non-equilibrium flows and the development of stability analysis methodologies for hypersonic reacting flows. Dr. Tumuklu's proficiency extends to open-source software development, data-driven techniques, and the application of high-performance computing to scientific software endeavors.
