Carlo Scalo is an Associate Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. He completed his postdoctoral appointment (2014) at the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University working on theoretical and numerical modeling of thermo-acoustic devices and sound-turbulence interaction in compressible boundary layers. Prior to that, he obtained his Ph.D. (2012) from Queen's University, Canada, working on subgrid-scale modeling of high-Schmidt-number turbulent mass transfer in equilibrium and non-equilibrium geophysical flows. He obtained his B.Eng. (2006) and M.Sc. (2008) degrees in Aerospace Engineering at the Universita' degli Studi di Napoli - Federico II, Italy.
Scalo combines large-scale high-fidelity simulations with analytical modeling. His research interests include high-speed aerodynamics, vortex dynamics, thermo-acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, compressible turbulence, turbulent mixing and heat-and-mass transfer, and numerical methods for complex geometries.
