PhD student Hyoung Suk Suh passed the qualification exam. His work is on modeling the thawing and freezing of frozen porous media. In the proposal talk, Hyoung Suk introduces the mathematical framework requires to simulate the freezing and thawing of porous media at the pore scale (see the rehearsal Youtube Video below).
Since joining the research group in Fall 2018, Hyoung Suk has published two journal articles and one conference paper.
