India joined the Nuclear Futures Institute as a semester intern, investigating the feasibility of repurposing nuclear waste to break down plastic waste. This research was accomplished primarily through advanced analytical techniques following experimental studies. This project was supervised by Dr. Lee J. Evitts.
In Autumn 2020, India re-joined the group to do a KESS sponsored MRes where she will conduct research looking at how losses can be reduced in hydraulic systems for automotive applications.
India has progressed to become a PhD student at the Nuclear Futures Institute where she carries out her research using finite element analysis methods using the principles of biomimicry – the emulation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex engineering problems.
