Faculty Highlight

Fluid mechanics figures in countless phenomena, from lung function to lake sedimentation. Terry Jo Leiterman (Mathematics) investigates both and brings fluid mechanics theory to life in a new lab on campus. The experiments she and her students perform there will contribute to scholarly understanding of the interplay between lake ecosystems and climate change. Their research could prove valuable to those exploring how changing carbon cycles influence climate.
