Congratulations to BSL PhD student Muhammad Owais Khan, whose presentation "CFD simulation of transition to turbulence for Newtonian vs. non-Newtonian flow through a stenosis" won first prize at the Biotransport and Simulation PhD student competition of the 2015 Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering, and Biotransport Conference in Snowbird, Utah. Here Owais is shown with proud co-authors Frank Loth, yours truly (with exit sign), Kristian Valen-Sendstad aka KVS, and some random guy in the background.
Congratulations also to BSL PhD student Resmi KrishnankuttyRema, whose presentation "Inlet flow rate variation and onset of flow instabilities in the carotid siphon" was a finalist for the Biofluids PhD student competition. Like Owais, Resmi knocked it out of the park with her talk, but faced some stiff competition. Well done both!
