Academic Background

Eddie began working with the Aeronautical Design Group in the Department of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering in 2000 as an undergraduate research assistant. He graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2001 with a B.S. degrees in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering. In 2003, he earned his M.S. in Mechanical and Aeroanutical Engineering. Performing research guided by Professor Case van Dam, Eddie is currently working towards a Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering at UC Davis. He focuses primarily on the development of transition prediction techniques for aeronautical applications of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Eddie's research interests also include automation of existing CFD flow solvers, optimization methods and parametric geometry definition.
