Work History

Master of Science Aerospace Engineering

College Of Aeronautical Engineering
2018-09 - Current

After completion of my Course work, I am currently awaiting Final thesis defense. My research work encompasses mathematical modeling of slip stream effects on a flying wing configuration Micro Air Vehicle with respect to its effects on Stability and Control. I have used MATLAB to program a quasi steady state Vortex lattice Method with added propeller slip stream effects to correctly model the airflow over a flying wing. The results have been validated using flight test results for Cessna 172

I have been assigned teaching duties while awaiting final thesis defense
