Received: B.S.., M.S., and Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 2006, 2007, and 2011
John Farnsworth received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2006, 2007, and 2011, respectively. While at RPI, John began working in the Flow Control Research Lab as an undergraduate in 2004 and has since worked on numerous projects in the area of active flow control. Since then he has also worked as a graduate intern at NASA Langley in Hampton, VA, and at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) in Newport, RI. His doctoral dissertation entitled “Fundamental Investigation of Circumferentially Varying Stator Cascades” was funded under a University-Lab Imitative (ULI) Grant from the Office of Naval Research and focused on a novel marine propeller system for underwater vehicles. Currently, John is a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the Department of Aeronautics at the United States Air Force Academy. John’s research interests focus on collaborative research in fluid dynamics focusing on the prediction, observation, understanding, and control of complex three-dimensional unsteady flow fields, where his expertise and focus is in the areas of experimental measurements and testing. In his spare time John enjoys spending time in the outdoors hiking, climbing, mountain biking, and skiing.
