Research

research overview

  • Dr. Calkins is interested in understanding many geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics problems, with particular emphasis on rotating convection and magnetic field generation as they apply to Earth’s liquid outer core and other planets. One of his main interests is developing simplified systems of equations that can be solved numerically for the purpose of understanding fluid dynamical regimes that are not accessible to direct numerical simulations of the full governing equations.
