Our Research

Our mission is to inspire new technology that relies on the efficient interaction of fluids (e.g. air, water, blood) and structures (e.g. vehicles, medical devices, energy harvesters). To that end, we research the physics of Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI). We are part of the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Virginia. We are also members of the Link Lab, a group of UVA researchers who study systems with both software and physical components (Cyber-Physical Systems). Our current research is focused in three areas: fish-inspired vehicles, Micro Aerial Vehicle stability, and body flow sensors.
