Choah Shin, a fourth year Mathematics graduate student was selected for the NSF Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship (NSF MSGI) for summer 2019. The goal of the internship, sponsored by Division of Mathematical Sciences of National Science Foundation (NSF DMS) is to provide opportunities to enrich the training and education of graduate students in Mathematical Sciences by applying their knowledge and skills in a real world setting.
Choah will work on a project "Accelerating simulations in the supercritical regime through locally accurate equations of state" focused on accelerating solution time for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions of supercritical fluids for energy technologies; the project ties to her PhD research on hydrate modeling and her Summer 2018 internship at PNNL. The NSF MSGI Summer 2019 project will be carried out at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Denver. Choah will also present research at the Rocky Mountain Fluids Conference in August.
