"I'm a PhD student at the Division of Fluid Dynamics. I started in the summer of 2010 after graduating from the Master's program in Applied Mechanics. My research is in the area of vehicle aerodynamics. My project is about reduction of drag on freight and regional trains by placing add-on objects on the trains that will interfere the flow around the train in a beneficial way. My supervisor is Sinisa Krajnovic.
