Thank you for visiting my website! You can contact me through LinkedIn or Email and view my published coding projects in GitHub at the links below.
My name is Joseph Wilson, and I received my BS in Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Energy Engineering in May 2020. In Fall 2019 I enrolled in the Bachelor’s – Accelerated Master’s Program and received my MS with Thesis in Mechanical Engineering in Aug 2021.
I am a member of the Flow Physics Lab at CU Boulder, researching how respiratory droplets that carry viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 are transported in enclosed spaces. The first project I participated in was the verification of the efficacy of a Negative Pressure Isolation Space for COVID-19 patients in a Skilled Nursing Facility. My involvement on this project consisted of the construction of a CAD model of the ward used for the isolation spaces and then performing steady-state CFD simulations based on the HVAC and building design. With these results, my fellow authors and I were able to determine the effectiveness of the Isolation Space at preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 outside of the ward. With our work, and the help of a willing and dedicated staff at the nursing facility, we were able to isolate COVID-19 patients and the facility experiences no deaths in patients or healthcare workers during the period of our study.
