Sterbing-D'Angelo interviewed by Forbes magazine

ISR Assistant Research Scientist Susanne Sterbing-D'Angelo is featured in this Forbes magazine news story that overviews bio-inspired flight research based on bats.

Sterbing-D'Angelo speaks about her work using 3D printers to create large polymer fiber hairs that mimic hairs on bat wings. The robust plastic hairs will be mounted on a sensor chip and placed on different parts of small, unmanned aircraft wings, to measure air flow from different places on the wing, delivering information about air speed and directionality.

This work is one of the products of recent research published in Cell Reports.
