Speakers:

Vanessa Rubien, PhD Student in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering
Talk: High-Speed Aerodynamics: Numerical simulation of shock waves, turbulent boundary layers and flexible structures with thermal coupling

Vanessa Rubien is a second year PhD student in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, with an emphasis in Fluid Dynamics and a minor in Elasticity and Solid Mechanics, advised by Dr. Ivan Bermejo-Moreno. She received her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in 2020. Her current research is focused on the use of high-fidelity numerical simulation to model and analyze phenomena occurring in high-speed turbulent fluid flows. In the future, Vanessa hopes to apply knowledge gained in high-speed aerodynamics research to cutting-edge programs that work with emerging hypersonic technology.

Irmak Balcik, PhD Student in Mathematics
Talk: Points On Elliptic Curves and Their Applications In Cryptography

Irmak Balcik is currently a 6th year PhD candidate in Mathematics at USC. Her research interests focus on torsion points lying on elliptic curves defined over number fields. With a thorough understanding of the structures of torsion points, Irmak’s goal is to work on its applications in elliptic curve cryptography. She is currently looking forward to pursuing a postdoc experience in this direction.
