Graduate Students

Elise is a a Ph.D. student who obtained her undergraduate degree in math/physics from Concordia College Moorhead, and has been at Notre Dame since 2014.

Tianze is a Ph.D. student who obtained his undergraduate degree from Huazhong University of Science in Wuhan, China and his M.S. in mechanical engineering from Arizona State University. He has been here since 2015.

John is a Ph.D. student from Missouri, who received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology. He has been here since 2016.

Karina is a Ph.D. candidate participating in the joint engineering Ph.D. program between Notre Dame and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Postdoctoral Researchers

Guiquan joined in the group as a postdoctoral researcher in February 2018. He earned his Ph.D. in Institut de Mécanique des Fluides de Toulouse (IMFT) in France and obtained the doctoral degree from the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (INPT) in September 2017. During his Ph.D., he focused on finite-size spherical and non-spherical particles suspended in turbulent wall-bounded flow, and the onset of transition. He currently works on the transport and feedback of dust and sand in the near-surface environment.

Charlotte is a postdoctoral researcher who joined the group in August 2018. She earned her PhD from the University of Oklahoma in 2014 studying sodar simulation for boundary-layer characterization. Her recent research has focused on using radar to study bats, birds, and insects in the atmosphere. She is currently working on cloud and fog microphysics as part of the C-FOG campaign.
