Potential projects/topics: We have multiple projects in the area of nonlinear dynamics and tribology, both experimental and numerical depending on the students' interests and capabilities.
Potential skills gained: Projects are generally tailored to a student's interest. So the skills gained can vary quite dramatically from one project to the next. For instance - nonlinear dynamics testing, system identification, signal processing, finite element analysis, Matlab/Python experience, etc.
Required qualifications: None. Familiarity with programming is helpful.
Direct mentor: Faculty/P.I., Post-doctorate, Graduate Student
