Targeting aero-elastic effects in composite wind turbine blades for passive controls in residential wind turbines to increase efficiencies over greater ranges of wind speeds.
I was born and raised in Laramie, and I still proudly call it home. For high school, I attended a college preparatory academy where I excelled in math and science, but my love for the Wyoming sun brought me back to the University of Wyoming. I combined my passions for playing hockey and skiing with the realization that I would like to be a marketable employee to complete undergraduate programs in Mechanical Engineering and Economics. Living in Wyoming, you become very familiar with the need to produce energy and the fact that the wind is almost always present. My interests in composite materials lead me to research wind turbine blades for my master’s program at the University of Wyoming.
