I am a PhD candidate in Aerospace Engineering at Caltech (expected graduation in 2024). I study reduced-order modeling of turbulent flows with my advisor, Dr. Beverley McKeon
. I am currently based in Menlo Park, as my group has mostly moved over to Stanford.
I grew up in San Jose, CA, so finishing my PhD at Stanford has brought me home. Here, I developed my interest in engineering, which motivated my pursuit of a BS in mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech and my MS/PhD work at Caltech. I also began pursuing music and running here, which remain my central hobbies.
>> My research is in constructing low-order representations of near-wall turbulent flows which capture key aspects of the flow physics while minimizing computational expense, and leveraging those results in the context of wall-modeling for large eddy simulations and low-order predictions for engineering quantities such as drag over surface roughness.
