Undergraduate Students

Kealan Hennessy

Former Graduate Students

Mani Mahdinia
Studies 3D vortices in the ocean, rotating stratified flows, parallel computing (and debugging), analytical and applied fluid dynamics.
Sahuck Oh
Works on modeling artificial photosynthesis and simulating bubble flows using spherical harmonics.
Meng Wang
Meng works on extracting velocity fields of the atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn from satellite images. He also studies critical layers, stability, transport and vortices in stratified and unstratified Taylor-Couette flow.
Nelson Chen
Masters Student.
Interested in CFD, and morphing technology
Chung-Hsiang Jiang
Chung-Hsiang specializes in using spectral and spectral element methods, parallel programming, MPI, and perturbation methods.
Pedram Hassanzadeh
Studies 3D vortices in geophysical and astrophysical flows, rotating stratified flows, high performance computing, theoretical and applied fluid dynamics.
Suyang Pei
Works on late-stage star formation and early-stage planetesimal formation via vortices and waves in protoplanetary accretion disks around protostars.

Former Undergraduate Students

Dana Lansigan
Harrison Bachrach
Caleb Levy
Caleb Levy studies the stability of oceanic and planetary vortices, and works with Aaron on internal gravity waves.
Aaron Wienkers
Aaron works on internal and inertial gravity waves in protoplanetary accretion disks and studies critical layers as well as numerical methods.
Jega Vigneshwaran
Jega builds programs CAD files to CFD data, and focuses on refinements of coarse meshes for increased simulation resolution.
