Linhdung Pham, PhD
Adjunct Assistant Professor
Linh Pham is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics where she teaches courses in General Physics, Introduction to Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Wave Motion, and Introduction to Electricity and Magnetism. Her research interest includes theoretical and computational fluid mechanics, turbulence, transport phenomena and environmental flows.
Linh Pham received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering, her M.S. and Ph.D. in Engineering Physics from the University of California, San Diego.
Scholarly and Creative Work
Linh Pham’s research involves detailed computer simulations to investigate the structure and dynamics of turbulence in stratified environmental flows. These studies have implications for better understanding of the physics of turbulence for large-scale flows to form the basis of more accurate engineering models.
In all of her courses, Linh Pham focuses on helping students build a strong connection between fundamental physical principles to real-world phenomena and modern technologies. Her courses are designed to facilitate an active-learning classroom environment which encourages students’ curiosity about the world by exposing them to an atmosphere that supports inquiry, and provides them with the analytical skills necessary to satisfy that curiosity.
