Project Highlights

Transonic Flutter Prediction

Transonic flutter is a critical design constraint for commercial transport aircraft, and therefore needs to be included as early as possible in the design. Developed a transonic flutter model that is accurate and cheap enough to be used in a conceptual aircraft design tool.

Design Methodology for 3D Printing

How do you design something if you have all the freedom in the world? Developed a design methodology for additive manufacturing based on lattice structures, while taking into account manufacturability with 3D printing.

Aeroelastic Tailoring of Lattice Structures

Developed a design methodology to more efficiently tailoring the aeroelastic behavior of a wing using additively manufactured lattice structures. Using this method, flutter speeds can be increased substantially with only a minimum increase in wing mass.

MIT Hyperloop

Co-founded and led MIT's entry in the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition 2015 - 2017. The team won Design Weekend in 2016, and finished amongst the top three teams in Competition Weekend in 2017.
