I am visiting the Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment on a Fulbright Scholarship from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. I am interested in the environmental impact of transatmospheric vehicles, including hypersonic aircraft and space access. To do this I am modelling the perfomance of various exotic propulsion systems (ramjet, scramjet, combined-cycle engines) and generating optimal trajectories for vehicles.
