A Conversation with Assistant Professor Brenden Epps
December 14, 2012
Just a few months ago Brenden Epps was a postdoc at MIT. Now the first-time Assistant Professor at Thayer has returned to the Upper Valley Region—he visited in 2004 while hiking the Appalachian Trail—bringing a vast knowledge of fluid mechanics as it relates to wind and wave energy, which he is using to research aeroelastic modeling of offshore wind turbines. Epps took a few minutes to chat about his research and his experience since arriving in August.
