Giovanni Romero: Giovanni is a senior undergraduate student in the Mechanical Engineering department. His work in the lab focuses on exploring the deformation of multi-core compound droplet which has applications in dug delivery and oil recovery. He is interested in doing computational modeling and analysis that considers fluid and thermal properties. He is eager to learn more about new software applications and expand upon the theoretical concepts he already knows to better understand the design process of projects that presents impact to industry.
Ava Custode: Ava is a Junior at Montville Township Highschool where she studies Immunology. She has been an Intern in Rad Lab since Fall 2022. She is particularly interested in learning about antibiotic resistance of bacteria and their modeling. She is a biathlete being apart of Varsity Girls Lacrosse and Varsity Field Hockey. Outside of school and sports, Ava volunteers with her towns Emergency First Aid Squad and animal shelter. Ava shows a lot of enthusiasm towards her research and in the future and she hopes to pursue Nursing.
