Aerospace researchers awarded for visual analysis at international conference
Four researchers in aerospace engineering, graduate students Lokesh Silwal, Daniel Stubbs and Abbishek Gururaj and postdoctoral fellow Vikas Bhargav, coupled their scientific findings with creative visual skills to earn awards at the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society conference Dec. 4-7 in Sydney, Australia.
Their work demonstrated fluid mechanics, the analysis of fluid flow, via photos and videos.
“Communicating complex and high impact findings from a research project is very challenging,” said Vrishank Raghav, assistant professor in aerospace engineering.
"Such video and/or photo competitions provide one an avenue to hone these skills. In addition, it allows the students and researchers to take a step back and think about the big picture and develop creative and artistic ways to communicate their scientific findings to the public."
