Dr. Stephen Guzik was a research scientist at CSU before being appointed as an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Flow Processes and Computational Fluid Dynamics. Dr. Guzik directs research in the CFD and Propulsion Laboratory. His research interests include high-order algorithms for partial differential equations, software infrastructure such as adaptive mesh refinement for solving PDEs, modeling of complex geometry, parallel implementations on specialized processors/accelerators, and domain-specific programming methods for heterogeneous architectures. Dr Guzik’s current projects involve extending the Chombo parallel AMR infrastructure to support fourth-order algorithms on mapped grids and using the ROSE compiler to optimized CFD algorithms for many core architectures. Dr. Guzik earned his Ph.D. in Aerospace Sciences and Engineering from the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies in 2010. Before joining Colorado State University, he worked in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a postdoctoral researcher for three years. In his spare time, Dr. Guzik enjoys road cycling.
