Diana Alatalo

Member of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi
I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Dallas. My research is investigating and modeling flow behavior of human milk within the lactating breast. This research is part of a larger projected funded by the National Science Foundation. Other areas of interest involve energy conversion, power conservation and efficiency, and STEM education.

Engineering Research Assistant at University of Texas at Dallas
Current project involves modeling the effects of heat on the viscosity of milk within the human breast. Simulation is performed on ANSYS software. Later experiments will be performed to verify the accuracy of the simulation. Previous project #1 involved modeling and simulation biotransport of milk flow during human lactation. My contribution to this project involved reviewing medical journals for health conditions that could benefit from the research. Previous project #2 investigated the use of phase change material in a solar water heating system to extend the system's performance into the evening hours. For this project I worked directly in the lab by setting up & monitoring experiments and gathering & evaluating data.
