Clint Dawson is a professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at UT Austin. He received his PhD in Mathematics Sciences from Rice in 1988. His research interests are in numerical methods for partial differential equations, specifically flow and transport problems in CFD; scientific computing and parallel computing; finite element analysis, discontinuous Galerkin methods; shallow water systems, hurricane storm surge modeling, rainfall-induced flooding; ground water systems, flow in porous media, geochemistry; data assimilation, parameter estimation, uncertainty and error estimation.
Dr. Dawson's research focuses on numerical simulation of flow in porous media and in the development of algorithms for massively parallel computing. He has served on the Cockrell School of Engineering faculty since 1995. Dr. Dawson has published more than 50 technical reports.
