Timothy Galligan

Research Assistant


I am from Massachusetts and completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering at RPI. After graduation, I worked at GE Aviation, performing heat transfer analysis and assessing engine thermodynamic performance. My research at LAE is focused on alternative fuels for aviation. I am also a collaborator on a potential flow website.



I am a research assistant, investigating bio and waste derived jet fuel for aviation. Currently, I am assessing the production capacity and climate benefits of bio and waste derived fuel adoption in the US aviation sector. My work also supports the ASCENT program.
