Tom is working on his M.A.Sc. at UTIAS, having completed his B.A.Sc. at University of Toronto in the Engineering Science program, Aerospace option. After volunteering in third year on the engine-powered ornithopter, Thomas conducted summer research on the HPO in the Subsonic Aerodynamics Lab at UTIAS under Dr. DeLaurier. Tom has been a team leader in aerodynamics and has been instrumental in developing a vortex-panel code used in wing design. Tom finds the interactions between aircraft structures and aerodynamic forces particularly interesting.
