Rony Touma

Rony Touma is an associate professor of Applied Mathematics. He has been teaching at LAU since 2005. His research interests include the development of central finite volume methods on Cartesian or unstructured grids for the approximate solution of systems of hyperbolic systems of conservation and balance laws in multi space dimensions. He is working on applications in astrophysics aerodynamics, and fluid dynamics.
