Laura is now a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley.
Laura received her B.S. in Engineering Mechanics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011.
For her undergraduate thesis, she used PIV to study the wake characteristics of a horizontal axis wind turbine on different cross-stream planes downstream of the turbine.
Laura's research interests include advanced experimental techniques, turbulence, granular flows, and shock-driven instabilities.
