Project Details

Description

In my research I will investigate the morphology of bird wings as well as their aerodynamic and structural properties.
The approach I will use is to build computational models for aerodynamic and structural simulations, as well as to perform physical tests. The focus of the research is on the evolutionary selection pressures that is the base of the flight of birds.
