A visit from Yuji Ohgi

IMG_1797A wek or so backIMG_1821 IMG_1798we had the pleasure of hosting A/Prof Ohgi from Keio University at SABEL Labs. Yuji kindly gave a sophisticated talk on his work in aquatic activities, as well as a sneak peak at his aerodynamic research as well as a few other topics of interest. Although is was a Friday afternoon we had a good attendance at the talk and some very interesting discussions afterwards. Our thanks to university colleagues, the Queensland Academy of Sport and Swimming Australia for coming along. In the following week we had a good opportunity for research conversations and input to a range of projects including cloud based realtime databases for sensors, instrumented sports balls just to name a few.
Yuji was accompanied by his daughter who thanks to the generosity of Holland Park State School was able to be a student for a day.  Yuji was hosted at the Gold Coast Campus by SABEL alumni Jason Harding,  where an introduction to surf and skateboarding was also provided. No trip to Australia is complete without experiencing the outback and an overnight sojourn to the Lost World Valley to sleep under the starts with nocturnal visits from possums and other wildlife was enjoyed by all. Travel safe and we look forward to catching up soon.
