Welcome to the CRUNCH webiste! The true home of MATH + X !

The CRUNCH group is the research team of Professor George Em Karniadakis in the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University. CRUNCH members have diverse interdisciplinary backgrounds, and they work at the interface of Computational Mathematics + X, where X may be problems in biology, soft matter, functional materials, physical chemistry, or fluid and solid mechanics. We welcome collaborators and visitors with bold ideas from across different fields. CRUNCH has close collaborations with MIT, PNNL and CSRC in China.
