UCR Researchers are Advancing Progress on the “Window to the Brain” Skull Implant
Researchers from the University of California, Riverside have advanced their progress for the “Window to the Brain” (WttB) transparent skull implant.
UCR's fluid dynamics research groups attended 12th annual Southern California Flow Physics Symposium (SoCal Fluids) at USC earlier this month. This was a great opportunity to present their exciting and diverse work, which included ice floes tracking in the North pole, collective motion of organisms in the ocean, wildfires, bubbles and more! . . . . . . #california #research #meatucr#ucrhiglander #ucr #lifeatucr #collegelife #iamanengineer #stem #engineering#science
Raffaele Baggi, a Ph.D. student in ME, was awarded a fellowship by the Aero NASA Institute to support his work on the Prandtl-M project, a collaboration with the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. The Prandtl-M, or Preliminary Research Aerodynamic Design To Land on Mars, aims at developing a small UAV glider that will be potentially the first airplane in the atmosphere of Mars. Raffaele is designing the flight control system of the airplane using a custom-developed flight simulator based on the the UAV aerodynamic parameters and hardware in loop simulation techniques. . . . . . . #nasa #armstrong #california #research #meatucr#ucrhiglander #ucr #lifeatucr #collegelife#iamanengineer #stem #engineering#science
