Two theses defended in under a week! Congrats Abril and Sailaja!

Abril and Sailaja both defended their MS thesis recently and are soon off to greener pastures (Abril just accepted a position at Toyota to work on hybrid electric vehicles). Congratulations to both of them!¬†Abril’s work¬†investigated the use of neural network models to simulate fuel economy and emissions from hydraulic and electric hybrid vehicles. Sailaja’s work revolved around the development and use of semi-explicit chemistry and thermodynamic models to simulate the formation and composition of secondary organic aerosol from oxidation of diesel exhaust.
