Biographical Sketch

Opeoluwa (Ope) Owoyele has been an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Louisiana State University since August 2021. Before joining LSU, he was a Postdoctoral Appointee in the Computational Multi-Physics Research Section at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). Prior to this, he was a recipient of the ORISE postgraduate fellowship to perform research at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). He obtained his Master’s and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University. At ANL, he received an Impact Argonne Award in the category of Innovation and a Postdoctoral Performance Award in the Engineering Research category. He is also the recipient of the R&D 100 Award for developing a machine learning-genetic algorithm for rapid product design optimization. His research interests lie at the intersection of numerical methods, data science, machine learning, and high-performance computing for design optimization and data-derived reduced-order models.
