Dr. Brown’s prior research focus is on multiscale modelling and simulation of porous and heterogenous materials and developing applicable mathematical tools and techniques. The research has wide ranging applications in the modeling of subsurface flows for oil and gas, Lithium‐Ion batteries, composites, thermomechanical behavior, and corrosion. Many complex materials processes have significant multiscale and multiphysical characteristics. This multiscale nature of this media often makes solving the full problem intractable, and alternative techniques must be employed to bridge these scales. Dr. Brown’s research is to develop computational tools and analysis techniques to deal with fundamental problems in multiscale processes of the complex physics. Dr. Brown has an interest in homogenization theory of flow and mechanics to obtain effective physical models, multilevel upscaling with complex nonlinearities and uncertainty, and development and analysis of multiscale methods for mechanics in heterogeneous materials. Dr. Brown’s recent interest includes application of these methods to real world problems faced at E2G, particularly integration of large‐scale finite element codes into the eec backend, cloud‐computing architectures, and prototyping compute environments. The end goal is to provide E2G’s clients a coherent description and understanding of the challenges they face and fast delivery of solutions critical to day‐to‐day operations.
