Computational Astrophysics

I mainly study massive star winds that are driven by radiation. However, it involves significant amount of numerical computation, visualization and analysis of data. However, I am seeking student involvements in a wide range of other topics that require numerical computations/computer modeling. For example, supernovae, accretion disks, solar winds, planetary magnetospheres (like Jupiter) etc. I have experience with a number of different astrophysical numerical codes such as Zeus-MP, FLASH,...

Cognitive Development Research Project

At the Brandywine Child Development Lab at Penn State Brandywine, we have two main areas of research. First, we ask questions about how kids learn about the world around them by developing fun games to help us explore what kids know about objects, numbers, and language. Second, we ask about the impact of technology on infants, toddlers, and parent-child relationships. We have a number of behavioral studies that examine cognitive development in children from 6 months-5 years. Undergraduates...

Ideation Flexibility

Our project is called Ideation Flexibility, because we want to help engineers become more flexible in the ways they generate ideas. We are investigating how different interventions impact the idea generation of engineers working on design tasks, including how the problem is framed, the use of different design tools, and teaming. The project is being done in collaboration with faculty and students at the University of Michigan and Iowa State University, so the potential impact is broad and...
