Amro and Deok-Hoon headed off for warmer latitudes these past few days, presenting their poster on wind turbine array optimization at NCUR ’19. They had a great time, and took advantage of a little sightseeing in Atlanta via scooter-share 🙂
Amro and Deok-Hoon have been working on fabricating a small-scale, collapsible wind turbine, with the aim to optimize an array of them using machine learning. They took the initiative to write an abstract for NCUR2019 (National Conference on Undergraduate Research), which was accepted for a poster presentation (yay!) , so they will be heading to Kennesaw State in April. Sounds warm compared to Rochester!
The Rochester crew went to the annual meeting of the Division of Fluid Dynamics, where Leo made his conference debut with a poster about his research project. Lots of great talks, a new minisymposium session (thanks to Margaret Byron at Penn State), catching up with old friends, and dining — not swimming — with the fishes at the colossal Georgia Aquarium.
