I’m Jennifer Quirarte and This Is How I Mesh

I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico and at two years old moved to California where I spent most of my childhood years. In 2004, I moved to Fort Worth, Texas. I am a first-generation college student. I have a great interest in the human body & its functions (and yes, Grey’s Anatomy is one of my favorite shows on Netflix). Overall, I enjoy helping people. With my considerable interest in the medical field, I had originally decided to pursue a nursing degree in the ICU (intensive care unit) field, but life had different plans for me. In 2018, I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management & Spanish. After months of job searching, I was blessed to become part of Pointwise.

This Week in CFD

laminar-mixing-cropIt’s the last week of CFD for 2018 and what a week it has been. In addition to several CFD jobs being opened and events announced, you still have a chance to make it to San Diego next weekend for the 2nd Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshop. There are also several case studies of very cool CFD applications that you’re certain to find enjoyable. And here we have one of the coolest images of a fluid phenomenon I’ve ever seen from our friends at FYFD. Until next year, enjoy what’s left of this one. Continue reading
