Jansen Zeghal Colon Stenken
Ken Jansen is developing the computational frameworks necessary to simulate complex turbulent flows. Understanding turbulence and creating accurate numerical models has applications in areas including transportation, electronics, manufacturing, and even biological systems. Mourad Zeghal develops models for prediction and analysis of the performance of soil systems, such as sites, earth dams, and embankments, during earthquakes. Freddie Colon studies the mechanism of protein folding. The results of his work may have applications in medicine and biotechnology, and could provide insight into disease-causing genetic mutations. Julie Stenken researches in vivo sensing devices, very small probes used to perform microdialysis. She hopes her work will lead to overcoming obstacles such as sensor rejection and faulty calibration.
