Mohammad Farazmand is a post-doctoral researcher working on the quantification of extreme events in fluid flows. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 in Mathematics from ETH where he worked on a variational approach to coherent structures in unsteady dynamical systems. He then spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow in Georgia Institute of Technology (School of Physics) where he worked on adjoint-based approaches for determining invariant solutions to Navier-Stokes equations.

Jocelyn Kluger (co-advised with Alex Slocum) is a fifth-year PhD student studying ambulatory vibration energy harvesting in the context of nonlinear energy transfer. Jocelyn received her Bachelors of Science from Cornell University in 2012. As an undergraduate at Cornell University, she worked on the Vibro-wind Project: using the wind-induced vibration of blunt bodies attached to piezoelectric cantilevers to generate electricity. Jocelyn is a National Science Foundation Fellow.
