Current Students

Justin FinnPedram Pakseresht

Pedram is a Ph.D. (expected 2017) student in the School of MIME. He comes from Iran with a MS degree. He joined our group in Winter 2014 to work on a NSF funded project (#1133363) on sediment-bed-turbulence coupling in oscillatory flows. He will use the LES-DEM approache in his research to characterize sediment-turbulence interactions, sediment incipient motion in coastal environments.

Justin Finn Xiaoliang He (aka Bryan)

Bryan is a Ph.D. (expected 2016) student in the School of MIME. He completed his MS at Oregon State in 2013. He joined our group as a teaching assistant in Fall 2013 and is partially funded under the a NSF funded project (#1336983) turbulent flow through porous media and is co-advised by Dr. Apte and Dr. Wood. He will use the fictitious domain approach to quantify turbulent flows in densely packed porous media.

Justin Finn Shashank Karra

Shashank is a PhD student who joined our group in Spring 2016. He has a MS degree and also worked at Ansys for several years before returning to study for his PhD. He will be working on numerical simulation of compressible, reacting flows using Space-Time CE/SE methods.


Justin Finn Chaitrali Ghodke

Chaitrali is a MS (expected 2017) student in the School of MIME. She joined our OSU in 2015 and is currently working on DoE's Solar Energy project (Sun Apollo). She completed her Bachelor's degree from University of Pune in Chemical Engineering and also worked as project research assistant at IIT, Mumbai.


Justin Finn Jeremiah Hauth

Jeremiah is University Honors College (UHC) student working on his UHC thesis. He is looking at developing an unstructured grid based solver for compressible, reacting flows in two-dimensions applicable to problems involving shocks and detonations waves. He plans to complete his BS in Spring 2018.

YunJi Choi

YunJi is a Ph.D. (expected 2016) student in the School of CCE and co-advised in collaboration with Prof. Artuto Leon (lead advisor). YunJi is working on `flow dynamics of geysers' and is using computational fluid dynamics as well as physical experiments to study what causes geysers in sewer systems.
