About the speaker
Dan is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Aeromechanics Research at the University of Texas at Austin. His current research primarily concerns the experimental exploration and characterization of plasma torch and glow discharge experiments. He received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020, studying the influence of gas properties on jet mixing in a supersonic crossflow and the application of laser ignition and jet staging to enhance chemical reactions. Prior to moving to the US, he studied at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and wrote his Master's thesis at the European Space Agency. His primary research interests are high-speed, high-temperature flows, optical diagnostics, and statistical methods. He is also interested in the application of related concepts to space exploration and the development of chemical and electrical propulsion concepts.
About the series
The i4is Education Team are running a series of online talks for i4is members. The talks are based on the various modules we have provided for the ISU recently. The main reason for holding these talks is to give the i4is members another benefit for their support. We also see this talk series as being beneficial to our i4is colleagues and research collaborators by giving them the opportunity to present to an interested group, topics that intrigue them. We hope that you will join us.
