research overview

  • Prof. Hertzberg's research interests center around pulsatile, vortex dominated flows with applications ranging from combustion to cardiac and pulmonary fluid dynamics, three dimensional flows and vortex rings in particular.Current projects include velocity and vorticity measurements in human cardiac ventricles and large vessels to help diagnose pulmonary hypertension and to improve understanding of the effects of diabetes on cardiovascular function. Prof. Hertzberg is also researching how to foster 'transformative experiences' for students via creative, aesthetic projects. She has pioneered two unique courses, Flow Visualization and Aesthetics in Design, and is studying the impact of these courses in both formal and informal contexts. During COVID she has partnered with aerosol scientists to study and mitigate infectious aerosols from brass and woodwind musical instruments, singers and theater performers. Masks work on all!
