My Michigan Tech: Savannah Obert-Pfeiffer

Since high school, Savannah Obert-Pfeiffer knew she had an interest in sustainability and conservation. What she didn’t know was that Michigan Tech would help her find an interest in fish biology, too. “I never thought I’d be a fish girl!”

Fluid Dynamics: Michigan Tech Researchers Take it to the Tank

Welcome to Hassan Masoud’s Complex Fluids and Active Matter Lab, where water tanks, glowing particulates, and mechanical fish lead Huskies to wondrous discoveries about the everyday flows, power, and potential found in natural locomotion. Swirling orange particles set in motion by a simulated school shed light on how collective movement impacts the system. It’s one of several research projects the lab conducts in fluid dynamics, experimental hydrodynamics, and transport phenomena. The lab combines reduced-order models and numerical techniques with simple experiments to study the interaction of flowing fluid with intricate, often dynamically changing structures.
