As a kid, what did you want to be when you “grew up”?
My mother has told me in the past that I have always asked engineer-type questions. I wanted to either build large trucks or large airplanes, I got to build both in college and at Aurora!
How far can YOU see? Where do you see the aerospace industry 10–20 years from now?
I hope in 20 years we will be able to treat automated flight systems in the same manner as our current elevators. .
One insightful fact you want everyone to know: Engineers have a great ability to verify the solution can work, we need to make sure we are validating the solution should be used in this case. Don't be afraid to ask WHY.
Professional Interests: I focus on advanced prototype and structures design, STEM outreach, career development and aerospace history.
