608.890.0767 Amihan returns to the PLC after stints as a professor at Gustavus Adolphus College and an academic advisor for science and pre-health students at the University of Minnesota. Her PhD research was on atmospheric fluid dynamics, so she tells her students that her dissertation was all about solving Newton's second law for a stratified, rotating, spherical shell of a viscous, turbulent fluid. With thermodynamics and chemistry. She is obsessed with waves of all kinds, especially visible light and color.
