Field: Modelling and Analysis of Aircraft Engine Performance for Estimation of Fuel Emissions

Lab Role: Research Assistant

Email: yschati@mit.edu

I come from India. My thesis work at IIT Bombay was on the study of axial flow compressor performance. At MIT, I am working under Prof. Hamsa Balakrishnan towards a PhD degree. Being from a propulsion background, my work involves modeling and analyzing the performance and behavior of engines currently installed on aircraft using data from Flight Data Recorder archives. This is being done with the aim of accurately estimating the fuel emissions from an aircraft engine over all the phases of flight.
