Yiyun Zhang

A PhD student in aeronautics and astronautics, Yiyun is working on the application of plasma science to aerospace engineering. Her research is on dielectric barrier discharge actuators for flow and combustion modification. Recently, Yiyun has focused on the plasma aspects of the problem, building a 1D model of the discharge and analyzing experimental results in MATLAB. She earned a BS in mechanical engineering from Purdue University and an SM in aerospace engineering from MIT.
