Jordan Wagener  

Jordan Wagner

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.

Joshua Wagner

Josh joined the PFTL in Fall 2016 to pursue his PhD in mechanical engineering. His research involves multi-physics computational modeling and experimental validation to study problems in fluid and particle mechanics. He is working to elucidate the fluid-particle interaction in binder jet additive manufacturing and is investigating erosive wear due to particle-laden gas jets.

Josh received his B.S. in ocean engineering from Texas A&M in 2016. Before coming to Rice, he was a visiting research student at the University of Oxford where he studied applied hydrodynamics. In his free time, he enjoys sports, photography, travel, and games of chess with his twin brother, Jordan.
