Haofeng Xu

Research Assistant

BACKGROUND

I am from Ningbo, China. I studied at St John’s College at the University of Cambridge, completing my B.A. and M.Eng. in Aerospace and Aerothermal Engineering in 2016.

RESEARCH

Since 2016, I have been a Research and Teaching Assistant at LAE, where I am pursuing a Doctoral degree. My research focuses on the development of electro-aerodynamic propulsion systems. This technology could potentially yield silent, efficient, solid state electric propulsion for small aircraft and UAVs. Other research interests include aircraft design and optimization, and nuclear fusion.
