Claudia Brunner

Brunner works  in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, where she is advised by Marcus Hultmark. Her efforts attempt to better understand the aerodynamics of wind turbines through experimental studies of fluid dynamics at high Reynolds numbers. Her research focuses on dynamic stall and its effects on the performance of vertical axis wind turbines, as well as field experiments using nanoscale hot-wires to measure small-scale turbulence in the atmospheric surface layer.
