Biographical Sketch

David Trebotich is a computational scientist in the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His research involves development of high resolution algorithms for complex flows in multiscale systems using adaptive, finite volume methods. Current applications of interest are subsurface flow and reactive transport at the pore scale, DNS of turbulent flows and microscale polymer flows. Prior to the Berkeley lab, David was staff scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing from 2001 to 2009, and before that a post-doc at UC Berkeley after completing his Ph.D. there in 1998.
