Dr. Richter's group is focused on computational techniques such as direct numerical simulation and large eddy simulation for studying turbulence in the atmosphere and ocean, particularly those flows with multiphase components. These numerical techniques allow us to study basic atmospheric processes in a wide range of applications including surface-atmosphere coupling, atmospheric boundary layer dynamics, and turbulent transport. Our research is also devoted to developing tools for simulating multiphase systems that can be applied to a wide variety of geophysical flows.

Postdoc opportunity: The Richter group is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in the area of computational atmospheric boundary layer turbulence. As part of a project funded by the Office of Naval Research, advanced numerical techniques based on large eddy simulation (LES) will be used to study aerosol formation and transport within the marine atmospheric boundary layer.
