Kolacki, Michael

Student Intern/Research Assistant

Michael is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree from the State University of New York at Oswego, where he is triple majoring in Mathematics, Physics, and Software Engineering and intends to graduate with honors in December of 2018. He has worked briefly with AstroBEAR, which performs magnetohydrodynamic simulations with an advanced mesh refinement, and has created in his spare time a 2D simulation of the continuity equation and a 3D simulation of the shallow water equations, each implementing several spatial reconstruction schemes and temporal integration methods. He was employed as a Software Engineer at Prista Technologies in January of 2016, and worked as an intern at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory from June to August of 2016. His current research is with Dr. Manuela Campanelli, with regards to neutrino cooling in binary neutron star and stellar mass black hole and neutron star mergers. 

Michael’s research interests include 2 and 3 dimensional simulations, computational electromagnetics, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity, and his non-research interests include genetic engineering, aquaponics, hiking, and cooking.
