Computational Plasma & Reactive Flow Lab — Current and Past Members  
In this thread, you can find some information about ex-grad-students of the Plasma & Reactive Flow Laboratory including their thesis topics and their current activities.
Min-Ha Kim
Minha was a Masters student from January 2010 till December 2011. His masters thesis topic was on assessing the performance of the latest Wilcox $k\omega$ turbulence model (2008) for flows typical of supersonic flight. After graduation, he joined BHI in Haman-gun where his work relates to the design of pulverized coal-fired boilers. Through a partnership with Foster Wheeler, BHI designs and manufactures boilers that are used in conjunction with a gas turbine to generate electricity.
Sathyan Padmanabhan
Sathyan was a Masters student from March 2013 till June 2015. His Masters thesis was related to the effect of the nitrogen vibrational energy in non-equilibrium on some supersonic flows of interest. He is now a Ph.D. student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Arizona with full assistantship. His PhD thesis is related to experimental studies of shock boundary layer interactions under the supervision of prof. Jesse Little.

Prasanna obtained his Bachelors degree in 2017 from the Department of Aeronautical Engineering, Kumaraguru College of Technology, in Coimbatore, India. He joined our laboratory in August 2018. His Master's thesis is about comparing the performance of various Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory (WENO) schemes when doing Implicit Large Eddy Simulations (ILES).
Van Tien Nguyen

Van Tien did a Bachelors degree at the Hanoi University of Science and Technology in Hanoi, Vietnam and a Masters in Aerospace Engineering at the Bandung Institute of Technology, Bandung, Indonesia where he developed a CFD code to apply Immersed Boundary Method and Re-meshing technique in Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics. He started his Ph.D. in our laboratory in the spring of 2019 and his thesis topic is related to the effect of plasma sheaths on boundary layer transition within re-entry hypersonic flows.
Jaehyuk Lee
Jaehyuk is a senior-level undergraduate student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Pusan National University. He is in charge of improving the CFDWARP code efficiency in doing matrix multiplication and inversion by linking to the LAPACK and BLAS libraries.
Minindu Weerakoon
Minindu is from Sri Lanka and is completing his undergraduate study in Aerospace Engineering at Pusan National University this year. He improved CFDWARP by implementing proper memory allocation cleanup.
