Hi, I'm Chris...
I am a Teaching Assistant Professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at West Virginia University.
I am fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of research projects and to teach throughout my graduate and post-graduate experience. I currently have funded research in the areas of unsteady aerodynamics and thermal analysis of submerged tubing and components. I also have proposals pending regarding biologically inspired aerodynamics and maneuverable munitions.
This semester I am teaching MAE 215: Introduction to Aerospace Engineering and MAE 335: Incompressible Aerodynamics.
I really enjoy being able to contribute to different areas of research and getting out of my comfort zone. I have expertise in experimental and well as computational aerodynamics and myself and Dr. Patrick Browning are the MAE Department's leading researchers using Particle Image Velocimetry.
