Laurens Howle

Professor

Laurens Howle is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University. He is also a Faculty Network Member of The Energy Initiative. Professor Howle's research interests span the disciplines of thermal science, fluid dynamics, and nonlinear dynamics. His present research projects - visualization of convective fluid patterns, stabilization of the no-motion state in free convection and bifurcation in imperfect or distributed parameter systems - are split evenly between experimental and computational methods.
