LEFTWICH LAB

MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING

About the Lab

In the Leftwich Lab, we study biologically inspired fluid flows, and use what we learn to inspire engineering solutions to a variety of problems.

Biologically inspired flows range from a swimming fish or mammal, to blood and air flow in the human body to wind interacting with a network of leaves on a tree. Through experiments, we predominantly investigate unsteady flows, where the flow velocity, direction, or both are changing throughout. Learn more about ourĀ current projects.
