Engineering Research AssistantOctober 2012 - PresentCurrent 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.
