Dr. Weigand's research focuses on the development of computational approaches for environmental problems. More specifically, his work involves examining and connecting the multiple spatial and temporal scales inherent to environmental systems. In his work, computational fluid dynamics, data science methods and physics-informed machine learning are used to help understand the environment. Applications include flow and transport in porous media systems, examination of reverse osmosis membranes, assessment of microfluidic devices for medical diagnostics, and prediction of urban wind fields.
