In my first year as an industrial engineering student, the Solar Team introduced itself on campus group T. I was amazed of what a team of students can achieve during their studies. The next few years I became more and more interested in designing cars and more specific in aerodynamics. Hence my master's degree in intelligent mobility. Together with teammember Julian, I did a thesis on the aerodynamic simulations of the Punch Two. Applying for a job with the Solar Team seemed like a suitable next step to broaden my knowledge.
In my spare time I play ultimate frisbee, where aerodynamics play an important role in throwing the disc. The angles at which you release the disc are crucial for the trajectory of the throw. Especially when there is a strong wind in the game.
