Professor Philip Yecko
Senior Visiting Fellow (2016-2018)
Professor Philip Yecko's main area of interest is fluid dynamics, where he applies an approach combining mathematical and theoretical methods with computational models, including direct numerical simulations, and laboratory experiments. Phil works on astrophysical, biological, geophysical, magnetic and multi-phase fluid dynamics, studying flows of accretion disks, atomization and sprays, bubbles, droplets, coherent structures, mixing and vortices in the ocean, convection, pulsation and turbulence in stars, magnetic drug delivery, ferrofluids, suspension rheology and pattern-forming instabilities. Phil is a regular participant in the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics summer program at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (GFD) and work with colleagues in Italy, France, the U.K. and at several U.S. universities. Phil enjoys teaching a wide variety of courses in fluids, physics, astrophysics, nonlinear dynamics and numerical modeling and simulation, and has previously taught at Trinity College Dublin, Columbia, M.I.T., Montclair State and Università Napoli Federico II, Italy. Professor Philip Yecko earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University and his S.B. in physics from M.I.T.
