PI, Curriculum Vitae
I received my B.S. from Cornell University in 2014, and my Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2019 in Civil & Env. Eng. where I studied the behavior and transport of non-spherical particles in surface gravity waves under advisors Nicholas Ouellette and Jeffrey Koseff. For my dissertation work, I was awarded the 2019 Andreas Acrivos Dissertation Award in Fluid Dynamics from the American Physical Society and the Lorenz Straub award from St. Anthony Falls Laboratory at University of Minnesota. Prior to joining UW, I was a Weston Howland Jr. Postdoctoral Scholar at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the Physical Oceanography and Biology departments. In my free time, I like to cook extravagent meals for my friends, garden, and ferment vegetables. I am also an aspiring crossword constructor.
Ph.D. Student, UW ME
Julio is a Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on the dynamics of non-spherical particles in turbulent flows. He obtained a Master's degree from the University of Texas at Austin, where he studied the morphological characterization of turbulent channel flows using remote sensing techniques, such as surface particle image velocimetry (SPIV). In his free time, Julio enjoys photography, drawing in the outdoors, and hiking. He is also working on his chess openings and learning to play Go.
Ph.D. Student, UW ME
Andrew investigates free surface transport and mixing in environmental applications using analytical modelling. He received his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in Thermal-Fluids and Applied Math from Boise State University, where he was awarded the Distinguished Researcher title for his work studying the use of solid particles as a fluid heat transfer medium in concentrating solar power plants. In his free time, Andrew enjoys skiing, travelling, and attempting Math Olympiad problems.
