Dr. Philip Boehner


- Basic Information -

Time in Larsen Lab: 2010-2012
Basic Project Description: Studied computational stochastic geometry and computational simulations of radiative transfer. Phil was the very first student to sign up to work in the lab after Mike Larsen took the job at the College of Charleston. During his time in the lab, Phil was extremely important in helping get the lab set up, and acted as a de-facto system administrator and computer builder as we got up and running.

- Post-Graduation Activities and Current Status -

After graduating from CofC, Phil moved on to grad school and ultimately earned his Ph.D. from Florida State. Now, his official title is "HPC Software Engineer in IT at GM". Here's how he describes his responsibilities: "....my work is kind of all over the place - in the engineering, IT, and development spaces. I mostly do wind tunnel simulation work, building and tweaking simulations to meet particular physics requirements found in existing results, and later optimizing parameters to reduce mesh size and simulation run times. My secondary focus is on tool development (scripts to automate or visualize things), and UI front end and back end testing. This secondary focus will shift to more numerical work in the near future, once our team has some breathing room."
