A Conversation with Assistant Professor Brenden Epps

MS Program, December 2012

Just a few months ago Brenden Epps was a postdoc at MIT. Now the first-time Assistant Professor at Thayer has returned to the Upper Valley Region—he visited in 2004 while hiking the Appalachian Trail—bringing a vast knowledge of fluid mechanics as it relates to wind and wave energy, which he is using to research aeroelastic modeling of offshore wind turbines. Epps took a few minutes to chat about his research and his experience since arriving in August.

Incubating an Eco-Business

MEM Program, December 2012

Residents in Upstate New York spend a higher percentage of their income on heating costs than any other region in the United States. Most can't afford to or just won't invest a mere $50 in small electrical upgrades that will improve efficiency, even if the LED light bulbs, power strips, or space heaters would pay for themselves in savings within just five months. Tristan Morris M.E.M.'13 went searching for a solution to this problem for his undergraduate engineering thesis at Cornell University and found what later became the basis for a startup, Cirquility, that he launched through the Tuck School of Business' Barris Incubator Program over the summer.
