Aerospace Welcomes New Faculty
The Department of Aerospace Engineering would like to welcome Dr. Stuart Laurence who has been appointed as an assistant professor. Laurence comes to the department from the German Aerospace Center in Goettingen where he worked in the Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology since 2009.
Laurence received both his M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2006) in Aeronautics from the California Institute of Technology, where he also completed his postdoctoral work. He received his B.Sc. (Hons)/B.A. (2001) in Applied Mathematics, Physics, and Philosophy from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
His research focuses on hypersonic aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics, supersonic combustion and propulsion, boundary-layer transition, naturally occurring hypersonic flows, and the development of experimental techniques.
