Cuong Nguyen

Dr.  Cuong Nguyen is a principal research scientist in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He started his academic career at MIT as a postdoctoral associate after receiving his PhD degree from National University of Singapore in 2005. He was awarded the Springer Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Prize in 2009 for the development of a software package rbMIT. He is the developer of the open-source software Exasim for solving partial differential equations using the discontinuous Galerkin method. He is currently developing a software package to fit machine learning potentials for atomistic simulations. His research interests include numerical methods for partial differential equations, computational mechanics, molecular dynamics, and parallel computing.
