Research Interests

Flow visualization, fluids education

Jean Hertzberg teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in fluid mechanics and design as well as measurement techniques, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and computer tools. She has pioneered a spectacular course on the art and physics of flow visualization, and is conducting research on the impact of the course with respect to visual perception and educational outcomes. Her disciplinary research centers around pulsatile, vortex dominated flows with applications in both combustion and bio-fluid dynamics. She is also interested in a variety of flow field measurement techniques. Current projects are focused on velocity and vorticity in human cardiac ventricles and large vessels.
