Hi. I am currently a student at University of California, San Diego majoring in Aerospace Engineering. I have taken classes in statics and dynamics, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, and aerospace structures. I am a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and participate in the annual Design Build Fly competition hosted by AIAA, in which we manufacture our own remote control plane.
Over the years I have met quite a few individuals who have not taken physics courses but are fascinated by airplanes. Through this website I hope to explain and deconstruct some of the basic underlying physics of flight for those who hope to learn more about the phenomenon. Though I still have far more to learn in many areas of this field, I hope to be able to communicate the excitement and wonder I receive as I dive deeper into Aerospace Engineering.
