About

Research Interests

Dr. Reckinger’s research interests in engineering education are committed to the advancement of innovative teaching methodologies and pedagogies. His research interests in computational fluid dynamics are focused on the development and application of advanced numerical methodologies for the study of multi-scale fluid systems. The growth of hydrodynamic instabilities and the resulting turbulent mixing are investigated both from a fundamental perspective and within multi-physics full-scale systems. Of particular interest is the advancement of parameterizations necessary for accurate modeling of the physical processes that govern the Earth’s climate, particularly in the oceans.
