Brian Wood specializes in transport phenomena at multiple scales. Upscaling using volume averaging or similar methods is a critical part of the research. His research integrates theory, numerical simulation, and experimental data. Systems that include a biological component has been a particular focus, and recent work has involved the multiscale modeling of tissues, including vascular tumors.
Professor Wood has a particular interest in connections between thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. He is actively involved in research to better understand how entropy, information, and complexity connect in physical systems.
