Biography:

Alex Fore is currently working on several estimation algorithms, including a variational data assimilation scheme using meso-scale hurricane simulations to retrieve the near-surface wind fields, and on several aspects of the Aquarius mission's salinity retrieval algorithm. Past projects include a study of lattice Boltzmann methods to solve the Navier-Stokes equations numerically.


Education:

PhD in Physics (2007) from Carnegie-Mellon University
BS in Physics (2004) from Carnegie-Mellon University
AB in Physics (2002) from Vassar College


Research Interests:

In addition to environmental remote sensing, Alex continues to be interested in qubit-theft-proof quantum codecs, and the formulation, discretization and implementation of lattice Boltzmann models that can capture different physical phenomena, such as multi-phase flow problems, diffusion problems between species with different masses, flows in porous media, flows of immiscible species, and interfacial instabilities in flows of immiscible species.


Professional Experience:

Before joining JPL in 2008, Alex developed a lattice Boltzmann model for the flow of immiscible fluids in a Hele-Shaw cell and demonstrated the capability of the model to simulate the Saffman-Taylor instability and resulting non-linear dynamics.
