I have advised multiple undergraduate and graduate students at NASA through the research process. Here are some pictures of my students and myself: The exit of the 8 ft. tunnel at NASA LaRC [jpg], the entrance to the NASA Quiet Flow Facility [jpg], a marina in Poquoson Virginia [jpg]. I have also advised students jointly under other advisors. Previous students under my guidance:
