Sinha to conduct research for Air Force through summer fellowship

May 9, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Professor of mechanical engineering Alok Sinha has been selected to participate in the 2017 U.S. Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program.

Sinha will spend ten weeks at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, using his expertise in modeling and control of dynamic systems to solve engineering issues the Air Force faces.

The program offers hands-on exposure to Air Force research challenges through 8- to 12-week research residencies at participating Air Force research facilities for full-time science, mathematics, and engineering faculty at U.S. colleges and universities.

“It is a great research lab and it offers an opportunity for continued collaboration,” Sinha said. “Hopefully, it is the beginning of a long-term effort to work with the Air Force to find solutions to multiple problems.”
