I am a PhD candidate in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington, with active research interests in Electric Helicopters, Flight Mechanics and Control Systems, Finite Element Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Autonomously-Healing Composite Materials. I aim to use my research to determine the commercial viability and feasibility of Electric and Hybrid-Electric Helicopters. I hold a Master's (M.S.) degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am also a hobbyist drummer and a competitive lawn tennis player, and aspire to become a proficient programmer, and eventually use all my acquired expertise, passions and interests to become a competent and a successful entrepreneur. **I attended the Wolfram Science Summer School 2013 and it was quite an overwhelming and an incredibly fulfilling experience because I got to learn a lot of Mathematica, while also realizing that I still have so much more to learn yet. I have one more year until the completion of my PhD, and I plan to use every bit of the knowledge I gained at the summer school, and then some more in order to make my research work all the more impressive.
