    CV

    PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

    02/2012 – present      Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, California State University, Long Beach, USA           

    Development Engineer / Research Analyst

    Develops a multi-thruster aerospike engine using LOX/propylene to be integrated into a pressure-fed two-stage-to-orbit nanosat launch vehicle.

    • Identifies superior components, techniques and materials in accordance with project requirements by 1) performing multidisciplinary trade studies and numerical simulations.

    • Designs and configures subcomponents such as thrusters, plug, injector, feed lines and supporting structures with NX Unigraphics.

    • Develops curved thrusters, which lead to an increase in overall performance of 4% compared to a generic thruster layout by increasing the total area ratio.

    04/2005 – 01/2012     Institute of Aerodynamics, RWTH Aachen University, Germany

    Research Engineer

    Performednumerical simulations, analyzed and interpreted flow structures in the base region of a linear scramjet engine and of generic cylindrical launch systems in the framework of national research projects with participation of the German Aerospace Center and EADS Astrium GmbH.

    • Adapted an in-house flow solver written in Fortran and implemented subroutines to simulate time accurate, multi-species, compressible base flows in the transonic and supersonic flow regime using Large-Eddy Simulations. 

    • Post-processed data using self-written Fortran programs and Tecplot to analyze flow properties and heat fluxes in the time and frequency domain.

    • Identified and quantified temporally resolved recirculating flow structures causing mechanical and thermal loads in the base region of different spacecraft.

    • Developed subsequent research projects and acquired appropriate fundings.

    • Supervised and mentored several graduate and Ph.D. students.

    • Managed and conducted project meetings and public project events.

    • Published results and presented findings at national and international conferences.
