Research interests

Algorithm development for Computational Fluid Dynamics


Dr. Hiro Nishikawa is Associate Research Fellow, NIA. He earned Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering and Scientific Computing at the University of Michigan in 2001. He then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan on adaptive grid methods, local preconditioning methods, multigrid methods, rotated-hybrid Riemann solvers, high-order upwind and viscous schemes, etc., and joined NIA in 2007. His area of expertise is the algorithm development for CFD, focusing on hyperbolic methods for robust, efficient, highly accurate viscous discretization schemes.
