Biography

Bianca graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics in 2011. She then continued her education at Portland State University, obtaining a second Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering. She obtained her PhD from Portland State Univeristy in Mechanical Engineering in 2022. Bianca’s thesis, entitled « Building a Turbulent Jet : Measuring/Modeling Lagrangian Dispersion, Particle Trajectory Dynamics and Intermittency », was awarded the « Outstanding Dissertation » of 2022 across the departments of Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at the university. This work was also awarded the « Young Scientist Prize » at the 14th European Fluid Mechanics Conference. She then moved to Johns Hopkins University for a postdoctoral research position. In March 2023, Bianca joined Polytehcnique Montréal as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
