Gabriela Bran-Anleu

Ph.D. Candidate, GSR

Gabriela Bran-Anleu is a Ph.D student in the MAE department at UCLA. Her emphasis is in Heat and Mass Transfer. Gabriela’s primary research areas are thermal property analysis of supercritical fluids and the transient behavior of heat exchangers for thermal energy systems. Gabriela’s past research experiences have been the behavior of passive scalars for a better understanding of real world applications and the properties of nucleate boiling under microgravity conditions. She also worked at San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station (SONGS) in the design groups and then transferred to the primary systems plant engineering group, where she was responsible for inspecting and solving potential technical plant problems. Gabriela is a member of the Society of Hispanic Engineers (SHPE) since 2008, and was part of the Center for Academic and Research Excellence scholar in 2010 and 2011.
