# Publications

Group member authors and alumni are bold-faced in the following list. While the convention in astrophysics is for author lists to be prioritized, many papers in both the high-performance computing and fluid mechanics literature have author lists which are either completely or partially-alphabetical. These papers are evident in context.

You may also Google MyCitations, which tracks most, but not all citations to these papers, as well as check out my ORCID iD page.
