  • About

    Professor Krisch is interested in exact solutions to the Einstein field equations focusing on specific matter transport mechanisms in complex fluids. Her recent work includes thin shell dynamics and applications of fractional calculus to boundary matching.

    Professor Krisch is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor.
