Dr. Deschenes joined Spectral Sciences, Inc. in July 2011 as a Senior Scientist. His graduate work focused on the extension of the Modular-Particle Continuum (MPC) method for simulation of partially rarefied, external flow around hypersonic vehicles. This hybrid method was able to reproduce flow results of a high fidelity rarefied flow description while requiring only a fraction of the computational time and memory. His research focuses on the extension of computational modeling efforts through an increase in the physical fidelity of models and expansion of the computational capabilities. His interests and experience include simulation and modeling of continuum and rarefied gas flows, high temperature gas dynamics, and high performance computing.
