Quantifying Energy Loss Mechanisms in MEM Resonators by Gabrielle Vukasin

Quantifying Energy Loss Mechanisms in MEM Resonators by Gabrielle Vukasin

I design, fabricate and characterize MEM (microelectromechanical) resonators to create cheaper, more sensitive, and lower power accelerometers, gyroscopes, and timing references.

Flow Path Resistance in Heterogeneous Porous Media Recast Into a Graph-Theory Problem by Zoe Kanavas

Flow Path Resistance in Heterogeneous Porous Media Recast Into a Graph-Theory Problem by Zoe Kanavas

In this work, by combining concepts from percolation theory and graph theory, we were able to describe the spatial distribution of flow at the pore-scale through granular porous media using only information about the void space's structure and connectivity.
