I got to continue the work of a graduate research project that focused on the aerodynamic behavior and phenomena surrounding the wingtip feathers of the Brown Pelican. I worked to build a biologically accurate wind tunnel test model that mimicked the geometry of the wingtip by manipulating data that had been previously gathered from digitally scanning a specimen.
