About the speaker: Julien Peelman has a Master’s Degree in Aerodynamics, specializing in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and a Master’s Degree in Research. He came to NZ Aerosports for a look, more as a skydiver than as an engineer, but after three beers decided he didn’t want to go back to France after all!
