MEET NATALIE,
A MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT

I am currently a UMN senior who chose the University of Minnesota due to the excellent reputation in the hard sciences. I chose ME due to the breadth of studies and expansive opportunities within various industries. As an undergraduate student in Mechanical Engineering I am able to be involved with clubs, research, and employment opportunities; many of which help people on a global scale.

MEET ASSISTANT PROFESSOR VINOD SRINIVASAN

I am an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering doing research and teaching activities in the broad areas of heat transfer and fluid mechanics. These topics have a variety of applications ranging from biology (blood flow in the heart, how sharkskin reduces drag) to weather and climate (tornadoes, glacial flow).
 
While the research is rigorous, we make some fun discoveries too. One of our lab's inventions (a fuel nozzle) was intended to recover energy from waste oils; it is now also being explored for use in spraying chocolate sauce for making cookies. 
 
I am extremely proud to be a UMN faculty member and also a graduate school alum. I appreciate the balance struck by faculty between lab-based research and making sure that the results are translated to practical applications.
