Generations of women have contributed to engineering, and Clark School women are proud to be part of that tradition. In honor of women’s history month, the Clark School is celebrating one female engineering faculty member each day. Read about today’s featured faculty member, Pino Martin.

Associate Professor Pino Martin is the director of the Cluster for Research on Complex Computations (CRoCCo) Laboratory. In CRoCCo, Martin and her team create the engineering foundation for the accurate prediction of turbulent hypersonic flows, developing theory and numerical methods, performing space and time-accurate simulations, designing new experiments to validate the numerical data, and collaborating with experimentalists.

The CRoCCo lab applies research to areas in hypersonic flight, supersonic combustion and access to space, such as the interaction of turbulence with shock waves, finite-rate reactions, surface catalysis and ablation, and radiation. In addition, they apply this research to general boundary layer flows with regard to the control of turbulence and better climate predictions. In addition, her lab has established an open database of traceable, standardized wall-bounded turbulent flows.

In 2010, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) named Martin an AIAA Fellow, and she is a recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2003) and the Alfred Rheinstein’11 Princeton University Faculty Award (2007) for “excellence in her chosen research field.”
