Kim wins two best paper awards at the SPIE conference, March 2019

Congratulations  to Kim for winning the Best Student Paper first place prize and Best  Student Paper second place prize for the Bioinspiration, Biomimetics,  and Bioreplication at the SPIE 2019 conference  in Denver, Colorado (March 2019) ! Kim presented her paper “Adaptive  and compliant wing tip devices enabled by additive manufacturing and  multi-stable structures”. She presented a bio-inspired segmented wingtip  concept for lift enhancement enabled by passive structural tailoring  and active bi-stable truss mechanisms.
