The Princeton Alumni Weekly this week has a fascinating profile of bioengineer John Dabiri, who graduated from Princeton Engineering in 2001.

Last year Popular Science magazine named Dabiri one of its "Brilliant 10," dubbing him the "jellyfish engineer." By studying the way that jellyfish propel themselves through water, Dabiri draws inspiration for a range of engineering challenges, from designing energy-efficient underwater vehicles to developing a new method for early diagnosis of heart disease.

Dabiri, who majored in mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton, is now a researcher at CalTech and has also been featured recently by Time, The Epoch Times, Environmental Research, and Ecoworldly.
