Bowie State Professor Improves Wind Turbine with Newly Patented Design
Dr. Mikhail Goloubev & Recent BSU Graduate Joshua Brown Developed the Concept
A Bowie State University physics professor and researcher, along with a recent BSU graduate, has received the university's first U.S. patent for a silent wind turbine that improves the performance over similar devices, can operate with low wind speeds and is small enough to power a single home.
Assistant Professor Mikhail Goloubev developed a unique design with two sets of three horizontal blades, which can harness the power of winds blowing in multiple directions and convert it into energy. More traditional wind turbines may house horizontal blades in a vertical shaft, which may need to be manually adjusted for optimal use under those conditions. Dr. Goloubev’s wind turbine does not include a shaft.
BSU Student Places Second in Summer Research Symposium
Laureen Daniel’s Work Has Implications on Understanding the Aging Process
A Bowie State University biology student paired with a faculty mentor for a summer-long research experience took second place for her oral presentation at the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Research Symposium for the Washington, Baltimore, and Hampton Roads region.
Senior Laureen Daniel competed against 13 students from six other historically black colleges and universities in the symposium. She worked with Assistant Professor Tyesha Burks to uncover the effects of the aging process on skeletal muscle atrophy, or sarcopenia, by investigating the changes underlying atrophy in adult male mice. Dr. Burks’s work on sarcopenia has earned her honors as a 2017 Emerging Scholar by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.
