Anni Vuorenkoski Dalgleish Ph.D.

Assistant Research Professor
772-242-2477
adalglei@fau.edu

 

Research Interests

Dr. Vuorenkoski’s research activities have focused on experimental studies of optical and physical properties of particle suspensions, two-phase flows and mixture formation. Her current research concentrates on the characterization of water column and benthic features by polarimetry, fluorometry, angularly-resolved scattering techniques, and time-resolved short-pulse methods, as well as on the experimental validation of computational radiative transfer models. Her past research activities have included adoption of optical, laser-based techniques to study the properties of turbid media and flows (i.e., fluorescence, Mie scattering, Schlieren, absorption spectroscopy, and acousto-optic methods). She has also been involved in the development and application of Monte Carlo–based computational methods to simulate the effects of multiple scattering in aerosol laser imaging. Dr. Vuorenkoski’s previous research also includes computational flow analysis for combustion engine applications to design turbomachinery component aerodynamic profiles and performance prediction of secondary flowpath components, as well as implementation of computational models to simulate mixture formation.
