Comings & Goings
Many things as they mature develop a new look and gain a greater depth of appeal. At Flow Science, our new look includes two new staff members who add more depth to our support and development activities. Dr. Guangfa Yao joined our team in April, coming from a research position at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His current projects are helping to extend our modeling capabilities for sand-core blowing and micro-electrical-mechanical-systems (MEMS) applications.
More recently, Dr. Gengsheng "George" Wei arrived from Texas A & M University to become our newest staff member. Included in Dr. Wei's activities is the task of adding new tools to our arsenal for modeling multi-phase flows.
While our own Michael Barkhudarov may be an expert in simulation, it turns
out that his son, Philip, is an expert at real flow problems. Philip won the prize for
largest fish caught at a fishing festival in Norway this summer. And that' s
not just a fish story.
It has been a pleasure this summer to have Hamed Marwan as our summer intern. Hamed is a student at the University of New Mexico with special interest in computer science and computer graphics. We will miss his cheerful presence and programming contributions when school resumes. Hamed, we wish you well in your continuing studies.
Our founder, Tony Hirt, has become a grandfather again. His first grandson, Charles William Miller, son of Heather and Ben Miller, arrived in Lawrence, KS, on August 6th. As our oldest employee, Tony says it's about time he can be referred to as "grand," something that is not derogatory.
