    AMINEF and Unika Atma Jaya invite you to a Fulbright Research Presentation on Aerospace Engineering by 2018 DIKTI-funded Fulbright Grants for Indonesian Lecturers – Visiting Scholar Dr. Sheila Tobing on March 13,  2019, at 10.00 – 12.00 at Unika Atma Jaya Campus 3, BSD.

    Dr. Sheila is a lecturer at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Unika Atma Jaya. She was awarded DIKTI-funded Fulbright Grants for Indonesian Lecturers Visiting Scholar Program to conduct postdoctoral research in Aerospace Engineering at California Institute of Technology in 2018. Previously, she earned her Doctoral degree in Aerospace Engineering from University of New South Wales in 2014, and a Master’s degree from Nanyang Technological University in 2009 and a bachelor’s degree from Institut Teknologi Bandung in 2006 in the same field. Her research interests are bio-inspired flight, renewable energy and fluid-structure interactions. She aims to excel at both the experimental and numerical aspects of fluid mechanics.

    This event is open to the public and free of charge.

    A short summary of the research:

    From Leonardo da Vinci to InSight Mission, history has shown mankind fascination for flying. These days, we turn to Nature for answers on how to fly and be good at it. My research seeks to understand how insects fly and to translate that knowledge to engineering design. Through experiments and numerical simulation, the fluid flow around insect wings is studied. The effects of various parameters such as wingbeat frequency and wing shape on the aerodynamic forces generated by the wing are measured. Our knowledge on insect flight can be a source of inspiration to design an innovative water turbine to generate clean energy for all.
