Nevin Brosius is a third year doctoral student in Chemical Engineering at University of Florida studying the dynamics of fluid interfaces and applications in microgravity- based heat transfer, under the supervision of Dr. Ranga Narayanan. His project involves working with NASA researchers
in addition to extensive collaboration with international researchers in France and Japan.
Brosius has published in NPJ Microgravity, filed a patent, and has presented at international conferences involving space technology, interfacial instabilities, and fluid mechanics. This work, involving strong connections to NASA-related interests, was recently selected for a NASA Space Technology Research (NSTRF) Fellowship and a Dissertation Improvement Fellowship (DIF) through Florida Space Grant Consortium (FSGC). His international work in France will be supported through a Chateaubriand Fellowship in Spring 2019.
Strongly motivated by outreach, Nevin regularly volunteers at the Alachua County Science and Engineering Fair, runs guest science demonstrations at PK Yonge DRS, and has created a service component of Graduate Association of Chemical Engineers (GRACE) at UF. He is also a member of UF Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society.
Brosius was recognized in the spring of 2018 by the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering with the “Attributes of Gator Engineering Award: Service to the Global Community” and has published/presented his educational work at American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and Transactions in Education.
