2017 NASA Ames interns

Several students from Cal Poly Aerospace Engineering Department are heading to NASA Ames Research Center this summer. Long-time Low Speed Wind Tunnel assistant (and 2016 aerodynamics team lead for PROVE Lab), Riess Haslam, (left), will be working in the Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel (same as last year!) with Lauren Polo (next to Riess) who helped out with the wind tunnel traverse this year, and Tyler Miles (rear) who spent last summer at Ames’ Fluid Mechanics Lab under the mentorship of a great friend to Cal Poly Aero, Kurt Long. This year, Katie Breitenstein (rear) will be at the Fluid Mechanics Lab - Katie’s been helping get a seal swimming project started. And Bob Comstock, currently PROVE Lab’s CAD guru, will be working on developing CFD tools in a separate division at Ames. Lucas Dodd (not pictured) is also heading to the Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel complex, having worked with Dr. Doig on bird wing aerodynamics last year. Whew. That’s a lot of people who’ve done a lot of great stuff about to have an incredible summer.
