Assistant Professor of Engineering


Dr. Monica Martinez Wilhelmus is an assistant professor in the Fluids and Thermal Sciences Group in the School of Engineering at Brown University. She is also an affiliated scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and an adjunct professor at the University of California Riverside, where she held a tenure-track faculty position before joining Brown. In 2016, she worked as a postdoctoral scholar on a collaborative project between the Ocean Science group at NASA JPL and the Environmental Science and Engineering department at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). She received her undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) in 2010 and her M.S. (2012) and Ph.D. (2016) degrees, both in Mechanical Engineering, from Caltech. Her research combines experimental techniques and numerical analyses to understand transport phenomena within the intersection of biology, oceanography, and fluid mechanics.
