Sterbing-D'Angelo interviewed by Forbes magazine
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.
