Check out MIT Industrial Liasion Program's Faculty Feature on Professor Hansman here!
Jacqueline Thomas PhD ’20 recounted her final academic year at MIT, from testing her "delayed deceleration approach" for landing aircraft in the real world to the scramble to move her thesis defense online in the wake of the global pandemic. Her story and video were featured on the MIT homepage Spotlight!
On April 3, 2020, Jacqueline Thomas defend her doctoral thesis, titled "Systems Analysis of Community Noise Impacts of Advanced Flight Procedures for Conventional and Hybrid Electric Aircraft."
On March 20, 2020, Matt Vernacchia defended his doctoral thesis, titled “Development of low-thrust solid rocket motors for small, fast aircraft propulsion.”
On November 12, 2019, Parker Vascik defended his doctoral thesis, titled “Systems Analysis of Urban Air Mobility Operational Scaling.”
On September 18, 2019, Christopher Bryce Courtin defended his master’s thesis, titled “An Assessment of Electric STOL Aircraft.”
Congratulations to all!
