Cary Troy

Associate Professor of Civil Engineering

Dr. Troy's research is in the area of environmental fluid mechanics, with applications in physical oceanography, physical limnology, coastal engineering, and civil engineering hydraulics. He studies turbulence and mixing in natural water bodies, Lake Michigan circulation, internal waves, surface water waves, density-stratified flows, and laboratory techniques in fluid mechanics including particle image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF).
