CeFPaC Experience: 

Studied Tollmien-Schlicting waves to attempt to delay the transition to turbulence on an airfoil. The research involved using Piezoelectric Driven Oscillating Surfaces to control pre-transtional laminar flow over an airfoil. Key roles were designing parts and communicating with machinist to ensure proper fabrication, reading and reporting on relevant articles to the research, setting up experiments, analyzing data, and assisting in other projects at the lab
