About Spencer Bryngelson
Spencer Bryngelson is a Senior Postdoctoral Scholar at the California Institute of Technology, working with Professor Tim Colonius. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for Exascale Simulation of Plasma-Coupled Combustion (XPACC), a PSAAP II center. He received his PhD and MS in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign in 2017 and 2015, respectively, working with Professor Jonathan Freund. In 2013, he obtained BS degrees in both Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Mathematics from the University of Michigan–Dearborn. His research lives at the intersection of fluid dynamics and computational physics, with a focus on biomedical, defense, and environmental applications. In pursuit of this, he develops high-performance software, physical models, numerical methods, and techniques for physics-based and data-driven analysis.
