From studying robotic fish schools to spreading sustainability, celebrating AAPI Heritage Month

In honor of Asian and American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Princeton Engineering spoke with two engineers at different stages in their careers. Hungtang Ko, a postdoctoral research fellow in mechanical and aerospace engineering, examines the intersection of fluid mechanics and collective behavior, and helped start a Diversity Bookshelf in the EQuad’s robotics lab. Anherutowa Calvo, a first-year B.S.E. student, has begun a research project on metabolic engineering for sustainable fuels and chemicals, and serves as an EcoReps Leader through the University’s Office of Sustainability.
