Sruthi Ramadurai, a University of Cincinnati master’s student in mechanical engineering and later a Ph.D. student in biofluid mechanics, has been named the Graduate Engineer of the Month for August by the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
While earning her bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, Ramadurai became interested in fluid mechanics as it relates not only to aerodynamics and fuel systems, but also the human body. This inspiration led her to combine mechanics with anatomy and physiology
"I felt that it was very interesting to see how the same principles of fluid mechanics that apply to an aircraft or an aerodynamic scenario also apply to flows in the human body," Ramadurai said.
After completing her studies, Ramadurai plans to continue researching and publishing in India, where holistic systems of medicine and health exist.
Four factors led Ramadurai to UC. The first was the quality of aerospace and mechanical engineering programs. Second, UC awards incoming graduate students for academic merit. Third, the co-op program allowed her to combine theoretical classroom knowledge with practical industrial knowledge. Fourth, UC has impressive sustainability initiatives, which interest Ramadurai.
“The main thing that motivates me is actually to impact peoples’ lives,” Ramadurai said. “I really want to significantly impact as many people as I can.”
