Flow Instabilities in Taylor-Couette Flow
Willamette University (Salem, OR), August 8 – 10, 2018
Host and Mentor:
Daniel Borrero received his BS in Physics from the University of Texas at Austin and his PhD in Physics from Georgia Tech. After receiving his PhD, Daniel taught at Reed College, where he worked to restructure the instrumentation laboratory course using a project-based curriculum. In 2016, Daniel joined the Department of Physics at Willamette University. At Willamette, he has continued to research fluid systems with complex spatiotemporal dynamics. In particular, his research focuses on studying the subcritical transition to turbulence in wall-bounded shear flows. He has taught courses across the physics curriculum and has recently been involved with departmental efforts to introduce scientific computation to the introductory physics sequence. Daniel was also part of the 2010 Hands-on Research in Complex System School at the University of Buea in Cameroon, where he taught sessions on studying flow instabilities and transitional flows using low-cost table-top experiments and computational modeling using Python to graduate students and faculty from over 50 African countries.
