PURA researcher (Spring/Fall 2023)
Research: I am a 3rd-year aerospace engineering student at Georgia Tech and recipient of the Presidential Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) exploring propellant management in microgravity environments. I am working to develop mathematical models that compare the impact of different forces including magnetic and dielectrophoretic forces on propellant behavior. The results of this project will inform propellant management device selection for tanks of different sizes and contribute to the development of more efficient propulsion systems for future space missions.
PURA researcher (Fall 2023)
Research: I’m a third-year Aerospace Engineering undergraduate student at Georgia Tech. I’ve focused on rocket propellant sloshing at the LGST lab for three semesters, developing a graphical tool to model wave propagation and a linear actuator to be used for future research in the field. I’m honored to receive the Presidential Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) to continue exploring correlations between different damping systems and the effects on wave amplitudes, with the hope of deepening our understanding of fluid dynamics.
