  • Patrick J. Fahy Patrick J. Fahy

    Aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles

    My current research interests include the relationship between technology and productivity, and what constitutes "best" (or even good) practice where technology is used for interaction. I have been working on an approach for analyzing CMC interaction for some time, which I hope will produce some principles for moderators (see below for papers on this topic). I have an ongoing interest in adult development programming (adult basic education, literacy, and English as a Second Language). My interests in the training world relate partially to my hobby, aviation (I am an instrument-rated commercial pilot and Class 4 Flight Instructor), including the models used in aviation for instruction (especially upgrading and recurrency). Currently, I am the Alberta president of the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA), and a pilot for that organization.

  • Malcolm Sparrow Malcolm Sparrow

    Aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles

    Malcolm K. Sparrow is Professor of the Practice of Public Management at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. He is Faculty Chair of the School's Executive Program, "Strategic Management of Regulatory & Enforcement Agencies." Research Interests: His current research interests relate to the risk-control functions of government, and to the special managerial challenges which confront agencies of social regulation and law enforcement. In this work he has focused particularly on the fields of policing, environmental protection, tax administration, customs, occupational safety & health, fraud control, corruption control, financial regulation, and civil aviation safety. He has helped many regulatory agencies develop models of performance measurement, information management and analysis needed to support their risk-control operations.

  • Luigi Martinelli Luigi Martinelli

    Aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles

    Martinelli completed his undergraduate studies in aeronautical engineering at the Politecnico di Milano and earned his Ph.D. at Princeton in 1987. He remained at Princeton as a Research Staff member to continue the development of computational fluid dynamics methods in collaboration with his former Ph.D. adviser Antony Jameson, at a time in which the MAE department was one of the worldwide leading centers in the field. He joined the faculty in 1994, and has been teaching courses in Aerodynamics, Applied and Computational Mathematics, and Design. Martinelli’s research is primarily motivated by the desire of improving the aerodynamics efficiency of airplanes, cars, ships, and energy conversion devices, and is concerned with a variety of fundamental problems at the intersection of aerodynam-ics, computational science and engineering design. He contributed to the development of fast multigrid methods for the solution of viscous conservation laws in both compressible and incompressible regime. He also made noted con-tributions to the development of efficient shape design optimization methods based on the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations, which have been widely used in Industry for the aerodynamic design of contemporary transonic airplanes.

  • Carl Ollivier-Gooch Carl Ollivier-Gooch

    Aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles

    I'm interested in developing numerical algorithms for computational aerodynamics, especially high-order accurate methods, and applying those to large-scale problems, including shape optimization. I also do a great deal of work on unstructured mesh generation and improvement, both in basic algorithm development and implementation of those algorithms in serial and in parallel. Recently, my group has also begun studying the impact of unstructured mesh quality on solution accuracy. My teaching interests are in fluid mechanics and computational fluid dynamics, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Specialties: Expertise in: Computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, numerical methods, unstructured mesh generation, fluid mechanics. Compressible computational fluid dynamics on unstructured meshes. My group is a leader in the development of highly accurate, highly efficient solution schemes for transonic aerodynamics in complex configurations. Aerodynamic optimization. We are currently working to leverage our solver technology to create more accurate and efficient optimization tools. Scalable unstructured mesh generation, quality improvement, and refinement. This work is being done as part of the Interoperable Tools for Advanced Petascale Simulation project. This work builds on our in-house research mesh generation toolkit, GRUMMP (Generation and Refinement of Unstructured Mixed Element Meshes in Parallel). See the GRUMMP webpage for more information, including how to download the software. Impact of unstructured mesh quality on solution quality. The quality of a computed solution on any mesh depends on the quality of the mesh. The connection between the two is little understood, and is especially hard to get a handle on for unstructured meshes. We are beginning to look at this question, with the goal of eventually producing meshing tools that will be sensitive not just to cell size and anisotropy requirements, but to other more subtle mesh issues that affect solution quality.

  • Ian A. Waitz Ian A. Waitz

    Aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles

    Ian A. Waitz is the Vice Chancellor and Jerome C. Hunsaker Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has been on the faculty at MIT since 1991, serving as the department head of Aeronautics and Astronautics from 2008 to early 2011, and as dean of the School of Engineering from 2011 until June 2017. In his own research, his desire for answers has led to advances in gas turbine engines, fluid mechanics, combustion, and acoustics. His most recent focus has been the modeling and evaluation of climate, air quality, and noise impacts of aviation, and the assessment of technological, operational, and policy options for mitigating these impacts. These efforts have led to more rigorous and rational evaluations of environmental policy and technology.

  • Jennifer K. Lynes Jennifer K. Lynes

    Aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles

    I grew up in Markham, Ontario back in the days when it was still fields and farmland, and then moved on to the University of Guelph where I completed a Bachelor of Commerce, specializing in marketing. My masters (UW) and doctoral studies (Griffith) focused on environmental management in the airline industry. My interest in motivations for corporate greening has evolved into researching motivations and barriers individuals face with respect to residential energy efficiency. Using the concepts of social marketing, my current research focuses on examining ways to encourage behavioural change with regards to sustainability issues. My home department is the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development (SEED), but I am also affiliated with the department of Environment & Resource Studies. Wearing these various hats, I see my role here to promote environment and social responsibility amongst the business community and to encourage those interested in environmental issues to be business-savvy.
