Alberto Gonzalez Campos

Alberto is a fifth-year student pursuing a B.S/M.S in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and is from Monterrey, Mexico. His primary academic area of interest involves fluid mechanics, specifically the aerodynamics of aircraft and wind turbine systems. As part of his graduate work, he has been engaged as a reacherer in the Control and Energy Systems Center (CESC) under Prof. Mario Garcia-Sanz, actively learning about control theory, as well as designing and testing feasible Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) prototypes through wind tunnel experimentations. By being a ThinkEnergy fellow, Alberto will have the opportunity to expand his knowledge and understanding of different energy systems, as well as learning more about the connection of his research with the current industry need, including the policies involved in the field. Besides his studies, Alberto serves as the graduate representative of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) at CWRU, actively advocating for the minority and diverse community inside STEM fields.
