Practical applications of interest are phase change heat transfer for thermal management, thermal storage, and water harvesting, metallic additive manufacturing, and droplet interactions with biological and natural systems.</p><h3>​Biography </h3><p>Professor Weisensee joined Washington University in St. Louis as an assistant professor in January 2017. She earned a doctorate in mechanical engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in December 2016. Weisensee earned a Diplom-Ingenieur (B.S. + M.S.) in mechanical engineering with high distinction from TU Munich, Germany, in 2013, where she was awarded the Siemens Energy Award for her work on condensing steam bubbles in subcooled flowing water. During her Diplom studies, she was a fellow of the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes). Weisensee also holds a master’s in materials sciences from UIUC (2011).</p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/Weisensee_research_2017.JPG?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>314-935-7951<br/><a href="mailto:p.weisensee@wustl.edu">p.weisensee@wustl.edu</a><br/>Jubel Hall, Room 203M<br/></p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-wpbox" contenteditable="false"><div class="ms-rtestate-notify ms-rtestate-read b7380be5-0edc-4615-87a9-76812a0f15d4" id="div_b7380be5-0edc-4615-87a9-76812a0f15d4" unselectable="on"></div><div id="vid_b7380be5-0edc-4615-87a9-76812a0f15d4" unselectable="on" style="display: none;"></div></div>
