About Brenden Epps
Brenden Epps is a postdoctoral research associate who is developing design and analysis tools for marine propellers and energy-harvesting turbines. He is the lead developer of OpenProp, an open-source code for use in preliminary design and analysis, as well as parametric design studies. Brenden is also currently working on an advanced computational fluid dynamics code for detailed performance predictions. Brenden supervises graduate students in the design, construction, and experimental testing of marine propulsion systems. At MIT, while pursuing his doctorate, he used experiment and simulation to study the propulsive forces generated by swimming fish and spinning propellers.
About the Brown Bag Lunch Series
MIT Sea Grant staff and students present projects, programs, research, and other topics in an informal setting to inform and inspire MIT colleagues and the wider community. The Brown Bag Lunch Series is open to the public.
