Katherine Van Ness will be leveraging computational modeling techniques to develop model simulations of laboratory-scale blade pitch control experiments. Learn more about Katherine's research topic and vision for an equitable energy future in the interview summary below. How did you get interested in doing work in the marine and hydrokinetic industry?

Katherine's research opens the door for researchers to advance marine current technology and bring renewable energy to new places. Photo Courtesy of Katherine Van Ness. I never had experience working in marine energy before the start of my Ph. Once I recognized marine energy was at the intersection of my interests in fluid dynamics and renewable energy, it seemed like the right direction for me during my graduate studies.

What is your proposed research topic and why did you select it for this fellowship? The seed for this proposed work was planted when my fellowship mentor, Dr. At the time, I was struggling to perfect our blade fabrication process of small-scale composite turbine blades, and since Robynne had research experience with composite blades, she had some great suggestions for me.

As our professional relationship developed, we realized that we had an incredible research opportunity between the experimental facilities at the University of Washington UW and the expertise in state-of-the-art software development of wind and water power engineering tools at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Our proposed work is to develop model simulations of our lab-scale blade pitch control experiments conducted UW. Verifying this model with experimental will open the door to study work beyond what we can currently do experimentally at UW and provide other turbine technology developers with a starting point for modeling their own devices and control schemes.

My work as a graduate student varies a lot, which I love. Some days I might be in the composite shop fabricating blades or testing new blades in the recirculating flume on campus.

Katherine credits a variety of childhood experiences, research opportunities, collaborations, professional relationships, mentors, and friends for preparing her for this opportunity. My first piece of advice — try something new.

My second piece of advice is to nurture your interests in and out of STEM. And my third piece of advice — find your fans, your biggest supporters! We all need friends and mentors alongside us to succeed. I would never have made it here without mine. What is your biggest dream for the future of clean energy in America?

My dream for the future of clean energy in America is that it will be redistributed to the people that need it most, bringing resources and opportunity with it. Trent Dillon, a Ph. Michael Kelly, a Ph. While working on master's and doctoral degrees at Oregon State University, Ali Trueworthy will develop a user-centered de methodology for high-performance wave energy devices during her fellowship.
