Anil Deane is an associate research professor in the Institute for Physical Science and Technology and director of the Laboratory for Computation and Visualization.

His research is in the area of computational fluid dynamics and parallel computing, with funded projects in space physics, microgravity fluid physics and high-performance computing.

Deane has worked on large-scale simulations of thermal convection, wake flows, compressible turbulence, and magnetohydrodynamics. The numerical techniques used for these simulations include spectral methods, spectral-element methods, finite volume schemes for compressible flows, and shock-capturing methods, particularly flux-corrected transport.

He received his doctorate in astrophysics from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1987.
