Research Interests

Engineering education, thermal and fluid sciences, student professional development

Dr. Steinbrenner joined the faculty in Mechanical Engineering at CU-Boulder in 2012. Her background is in energy systems and the design and analysis of experimental thermal-fluid systems. She has worked in laboratories in the US and Europe, studying phenomena ranging from solar-thermo-chemistry to fuel cells to phase-change printing technologies. In addition to mentoring students during their senior design projects, she teaches courses in fluids, heat transfer, and thermodynamics with a focus on developing the students’ conceptual understanding and problem-solving methodologies through active learning techniques.
