Todd Arbogast's areas of expertise include the numerical analysis of partial differential systems,
mathematical modeling, and scientific computation. His research includes the development of a
Eulerian-Lagrangian schemes for advective flow; the study of mixed methods and cell-centered finite
differences for nonlinear and geometrically irregular elliptic problems; the modeling and simulation
of multi-phase flow through porous media, including fractured and vuggy media, with applications to
petroleum production and groundwater resources; numerical homogenization, subgrid upscaling, and
domain decomposition of heterogeneous media; and simulation of the dynamics of the Earth's
mantle. He is a core member of the Oden Institute for
Computational Engineering and Sciences and associate director of the Center for Subsurface Modeling at The University of Texas at Austin, and an associated faculty of
the Department of Statistics and Date Sciences.
