I’m delighted to announce that next week, I will begin working at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in Belgium as a short-term research fellow! Over the past few months, my doctoral advisor and I have worked with the VKI faculty to arrange a position for me that will allow me to further study high-speed boundary layer stability theory as part of my Ph.D. research. I’ll be living and working in Belgium until at least June, though depending on how things transpire with my research and with the coronavirus, those plans may change slightly. I’m tremendously excited for this opportunity to work abroad as part of an international collaboration between two great institutions, and I look forward to both the technical knowledge and professional development that this experience is sure to provide. And of course, the chocolate and waffles!
