Postdoctoral Researcher, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, United States

Hannah Ross

Hannah Ross is a postdoctoral researcher with the water power program at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Her work focuses on developing and validating numerical modeling methods for axial-flow and cross-flow current turbines.

Hannah completed her doctoral studies at the University of Washington’s Pacific Marine Energy Center, in the mechanical engineering department. Her work involved experimentally investigating the effects of scaling on the performance and hydrodynamics of cross-flow current turbines, with an emphasis on blockage and flow confinement effects.
