Background

Ph.D. Candidate, Aeronautics & Astronautics, Stanford University, 2013-present.
M.S., Aeronautics & Astronautics, Stanford University, 2013.
B.S., Aerospace Engineering, University of Kansas, 2011.

Research Interests

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Multidisciplinary Design, Analysis, & Optimization (MDAO)
  • Multi-Information Source Optimization
  • Preliminary Aerospace Vehicle Design
  • Air-Breathing Orbital Insertion Vehicles
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • Optimization under Uncertainty

Work is being completed in developing design tools for rapid optimization of hypersonic vehicles using two- dimensional power law geometries as shown.


Combining multiple pressure distributions from different power law profiles, various geometries can be evaluated and response surfaces created that are then used for optimization.
