Dr. Chris Morton completed his undergraduate degree in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2008. His Masters and PhD were completed in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo with an area of specialization in Experimental Aerodynamics. During his PhD studies, he spent time at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands, gaining expertise with state of the art laser-based fluid flow measurement systems (specifically Tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry). His research focuses on solving problems in bluff body aerodynamics, aerodynamics in sports, airflow control, and energy harvesting systems exploiting unsteady aerodynamics. Chris is presently an Associate Professor in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Calgary, and he is the inventor of the AeroLab Tech sensor system. He currently leads all Research and Product Development at AeroLab Technology.
