"I'm currently in a Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor for Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. As part of the program, I'm researching a marine renewable energy technology named Vortex Induced Vibrations for Aquatic Clean Energy. Specifically, I'm working on optimizing the hydrodynamics of this device using a combination of computer simulations and physical experiments in hopes to increase the total power generated and reduce the necessary inflow water speeds necessary to generate power."
