Cong Lin

PhD Student

Office: EBU II Room 132A

Cong is a PhD student at UC San Diego. His research focuses on constructing data-driven physics-based models for turbulence, particularly, projection-based reduced-order models with a focus on methods that resolve triadic interactions in the frequency domain. Prior to UCSD, he worked positions as staff scientist at Caltech and research engineer at the University of Illinois Research Park. He received a MS in Aerospace engineering at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a BS in Mechanical & Process engineering at Technical University of Darmstadt.
