Through the funding of Brown University's UTRA (Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award), I was given the opportunity to assist the fabrication of a custom designed pontoon vessel with a hydrokinetic turbine. This unique turbine generates power through oscillating hydrofoils rather than conventional rotary wings. The four major I was assigned is shown below on top of general assistance with fabrication, assembly, maintenance, and testing of the device.
