Aria Hamann

Aria is an Engineering-Physics and Studio Art double major from Oregon. She is an undergraduate student from Westmont College who is working with Will Steinhardt for the summer. Her research project deals with how hydraulic fractures propagate through tough gels. She will specifically be exploring how gels with multiple toughnesses fracture, in hopes of understanding how analogous fractures in rock would react to a boundary (between shale and limestone for example).
