Dr. Carolyn Kuranz received her Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the
University of Michigan in 2009. She is currently an Assistant
Research Scientist at the Center for Laser Experimental Astrophysical
Research and the Center for Radiative Shock Hydrodynamics at the
University of Michigan. Her research involves hydrodynamic
instability and radiation hydrodynamics experiments at
high-energy-density physics facilities. Dr. Kuranz's research is
relevant to astrophysical systems, such as, the hydrodynamics
instabilities that may develop in core-collapse supernovae or a
radiative shocks in a supernova remnants. She has lead experiments at
the Omega Laser Facility and National Ignition Facility and
participated in experiments at the Trident Laser Facility and The
Vulcan Laser Facility.
