Undergraduate Research AssistantDecember 2015 - PresentDuring my first year as a research assistant during my freshmen year in college, I researched basic fluid dynamics and the statistics of particle trajectories using Matlab as my platform. I was then given a project where I studied the motion of sedimenting fibers in turbulent fluid flows, where I used the numerical database from Johns Hopkins University to extract accelerations, pressure and velocity gradients, along fluid particle trajectories. As a sophomore, I am currently investigating a theory concerning the sedimentation of asymmetric particles in laminar flow, which is a continuation of a 10-week summer fellowship I had that was funded by the National Science Foundation. After I finish conducting the experimental part of this investigation and understanding the results and comparing it to the theory, we will be working on publishing our work soon.
