Professor Hou focuses on modeling, computation, and mathematical analysis of vortex dynamics, interfacial flows, and multiscale problems. His recent research interests include fundamental problems such as the global regularity or possible finite time blow-up of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations, multiscale modeling of 3D incompressible flows, data-driven stochastic multiscale methods, and adaptive data analysis for nonlinear and nonstationary data.
