Dennice GaymeDennice Gayme, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been named the Carol Croft Linde Faculty Scholar.

The Carol Croft Linde Faculty Scholarship, a five-year appointment, was endowed by L. Gordon Croft ’56 to help the Whiting School retain outstanding faculty members.

Gayme’s research is concerned with modeling, design, and control of distributed systems. Her group studies interconnected and spatially distributed systems using computational and theoretical methods from applied mathematics, dynamics, controls, optimization, and fluid mechanics. Her group focuses on wall bounded turbulent flow; wind farm modeling and control; stability and performance coupled oscillator networks; and grid integration of renewable energy sources.
