Gretar Tryggvason is the Charles A. Miller, Jr. Distinguished Professor in mechanical engineering and head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

He is widely recognized for his contributions to computational fluid dynamics, including to the development of methods for computations of multiphase flows, as well as for pioneering direct numerical simulations of such flows.

Tryggvason came to Johns Hopkins from the University of Notre Dame, where he was the Viola D. Hank Professor and chair of the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (2010 – 2017).  From 2002 to 2015, he served as Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Computational Physics.

Tryggvason received his Ph.D. from Brown University in 1985.
