Wissa to investigate flow control devices, interdisciplinary teams with new NSF grants

Prof. Wissa was awarded two National Science Foundation grants for collaborative  proposals. Prof. Wissa is the co-Principal investigator alongside  Aerospace Engineering Assistant Professor Andres Goza. They will be  studying passive control flow devices inspired by bird feathers. Two  graduate students, Chengfang Duan and Ahmed Othman, are  currently working on the project and more will be recruited in the  future. Moreover, Prof. Wissa is a co-Principal with investigators  Marianne Alleyne (assistant professor, School of Integrative Biology),  Andrew Suarez (professor, School of Integrative Biology), and William  Barley (assistant professor, Department of Communication) on a two-year  grant awarded by NSF’s Biology Integration Institutes program. The focus  of the study is to help develop teaching, research, and public  engagement strategies. Both projects are currently recruiting students.  Email: awissa@illinois.edu if interested. More details can be found here.
