PIZZA LUNCH PODCASTS
Addressing Emergent Challenges with Wind Power
Listen to the podcast:
Dr. Sukanta Basu, an associate professor in the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University, talks about the benefits and challenges of wind power and what it could mean for the future of renewable energy. His field of study is
boundary layer meteorology, which addresses some of the widespread uses of wind power.
Dr. Basu and his group research various boundary layer turbulence and practical problems using a combination of innovative approaches, such as state-of-the-art numerical simulations, field measurements, flow-visualizations and theoretical developments.

PODCAST & VIDEO: 3D Printing Replacement Body Parts
Regenerative medicine, a fledgling field with the aim of regrowing parts from a person’s own cells, is being amplified with 3D-printing technology, which can now use organic materials to create scaffolds that cells need to grow into their final forms. Richard Wysk, a professor of industrial and systems engineering at North Carolina State University, discusses the latest successes with this research, and the timeline for creating more complicated structures.
