Nevin Brosius is a PhD student at University of Florida in chemical engineering studying resonance and pattern formation in fluid mechanics. Nevin’s research focuses on a resonant phenomenon involving fluid interfaces known as the Faraday instability, which has a wealth of applications in space-based technologies and the measurement of key thermophysical properties. He is a recipient of the NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship (NSTRF), a technology-driven program facilitating space-focused research of Faraday instability as a means to improve heat transfer operations in space. Nevin has thus far published in Nature npj Microgravity and has filed a patent for his work on the Faraday instability in levitated liquid droplets for the measurement of surface tension.
