MSI PI Suo Yang (assistant professor, Mechanical Engineering) has received a Young Faculty Award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The three-year award totals over $980,000. Professor Yang and his research group will use the award to study sonic booms, with the goal of minimizing the energy and environmental impacts of supersonic and hypersonic flight. A story about this award appears on the mechanical engineering department’s website: 2021 DARPA Young Faculty Award Goes to Suo Yang.
Professor Yang uses MSI resources for modeling and simulations related to several projects concerned with reacting flows.
