Felix Ewere, Ph.D.

Lecturer, MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING

Biography

Dr. Felix Ewere received both his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 2015 and his M.S. in Aerospace Engineering in 2010 from The University of Alabama in Huntsville. His B.S. in Mechanical Engineering was obtained in 2005 from the University of Lagos Nigeria. His areas of research include: solid mechanics, aerodynamics, adaptive structures, energy harvesting, nonlinear dynamics and flow-induced vibration. Recent research works have focused on exploiting aeroelastic instabilities on piezoelectric structures for engineering applications which has led to a novel airflow sensing scheme. He has authored and presented archival journal papers and technical papers in professional conferences related to smart structures and flow-induced vibration research. He is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He is an ASME member and AIAA young professional.
