Analyzing mutational signatures in somatic human genome

The modern turbofan engine has been generally well studied in the past few decades yet there still exists a dearth of understanding regarding the stream duct which surrounds the core engine. The potential to improve the propulsive efficiency of the engine via these stream ducts can make a significant difference in both commercial and military aviation. The aim of this project is to explore this possibility by modeling both physically and analytically the flow within a stream duct of a sub-scale representation of a turbofan engine.

I've had experience with industry and research and I feel like this opportunity is a perfect blend of the two. I'm excited to apply the knowledge I've learned to real world problems and I hope to get better insight into what career path I want to follow. I'm looking forward to solidifying my foundation in this subject material since I have a lot of interest in the fields of propulsion and aerodynamics.
