Name: Alexis Kaminski (she/her)
Discipline: Mechanical engineering
Degrees: B.S. and M.S., Mechanical engineering, University of Alberta, 2010, 2012; Ph.D., applied mathematics and theoretical physics, University of Cambridge, 2017
Research interests: Geophysical and environmental fluid dynamics — the physics of how fluids flow in the natural environment. I focus on waves, instabilities and turbulence in stratified flows, in many cases inspired by ocean observations.
Hobbies: Dance and swimming, and watching really cheesy TV shows!
