Jordan joined the PFTL in the Fall of 2016. His interests lie in the computational and physical modeling of fluid-structure interactions in particle-laden flows. Additionally, he is investigating fractal surfaces and magnetohydrodynamic effects as they relate to fluid mechanics. Jordan is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow.
Before joining Rice University, he earned his B.S. in Ocean Engineering with a minor in Mathematics from Texas A&M University. He was a visiting research student at the University of Oxford in the Department of Engineering Science and also a guest researcher at HR Wallingford Ltd where he studied computational wave mechanics. In his spare time, Jordan enjoys scuba diving, photography, surfing, and reading.
