Devina Sanjaya, PhD candidate in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan, was awarded 1st place for the paper and presentation “Improving High-Order Finite Element Approximation Through Geometrical Warping” entered in the 6th AIAA CFD Student Paper Competition at the 2015 AIAA Aviation Conference. There were 36 papers entered in the competition. The paper was co-authored by Prof. Krzysztof Fidkowski, Michigan Aerospace Associate Professor.

Before her doctorate study, Devina earned her Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering with minor in Mathematics from the University of Michigan: Ann Arbor and her Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University. Her research focuses on the development of algorithm to improve the robustness and accuracy of CFD methods, error estimation, and adaptive methods. Currently, she is working on combining geometrical warping with hp-adaptation to further improve high-order finite element approximation power.
