Moin is the founding director of the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford and Ames. Established in 1987 as a research consortium between NASA and Stanford, Center for Turbulence Research is devoted to fundamental studies of turbulent flows. Center of Turbulence Research is widely recognized as the international focal point for turbulence research, attracting diverse groups of researchers from engineering, mathematics and physics.
Professor Moin pioneered the use of direct and Large Eddy Simulation techniques for the study of turbulence physics, control and modelling concepts and has written widely on the structure of turbulent shear flows. His current interests include: interaction of turbulent flows and shock waves, aerodynamic noise and hydroacoustics, aerooptics, combustion, numerical analysis, turbulence control, large eddy simulation and parallel computing. He is an Editor of the Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics and Associate Editor of Physics of Fluids, Journal of Computational Physics.
Professor Moin has been awarded NASA's Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal, the AIAA Lawrence Sperry Award, AIAA Fluid Dynamics Award, the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal, the Outstanding Achievement Award of the University of Minnesota, the Humboldt Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany, a Doctores Honoris Causa from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. In 2009, he was recognized by the Chinese Academy of Sciences with an Einstein Professorship. Professor Moin is the recipient of the APS Fluid Dynamics Prize. He is recognized as an ISI highly cited researcher. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and AIAA, and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the National Academy of Sciences.
