Role in Affiliated Centers
Member of the Center for Control, Dynamical Systems and Computation, the Center for Energy Efficiency Design and the Greenscale Center for Energy-Efficient Computing
Frédéric Gibou's research is focused on the design and the applications of new high resolution multi-scale computational algorithms for a variety of applications including materials science, multiphase flows at the micro/nanoscale, computer vision with an emphasis on the segmentation of medical images and computer graphics. Together with colleagues at the Greenscale Center for Energy–Efficient Computing, he applies his research interests to developing specialized architectures to calibrate reduced-order models of airflow in supercomputers.
Frédéric Gibou received a Ph.D. from the Applied Mathematics Department at UC Los Angeles, and did his post-doctoral research in the Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science at Stanford University. He was awarded a NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship and an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship in Mathematics. Gibou is a faculty member in UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathematics and he is a core faculty member in the Computational Science and Engineering program.
