Lunch Lecture: Realistic Hydrogen-Based Solutions for Sustainable Aviation

Edit: For people that cannot attend physically, the lunch lecture will be broadcasted online

As part of his visit to the LR Faculty on Friday October 21st, professor John-Paul Clarke (University of Texas at Austin) will be presenting his latest contributions on hydrogen applications in aerospace during a lunch lecture titled: Realistic Hydrogen-Based Solutions for Sustainable Aviation.

The lunch lecture will be hosted in lecture hall B from 12:35 to 13:35.

Register below for a Free Lunch!

Event is open to all (non C&S students as well)!

About John-Paul Clarke

John-Paul Clarke is a professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at The University of Texas at Austin, where he holds the Ernest Cockrell Jr. Memorial Chair in Engineering. Prior to joining the faculty at UT Austin, he was a faculty member at Georgia Tech, the Vice President of Strategic Technologies at United Technologies Corporation (now Raytheon), a faculty member at MIT, and a researcher at Boeing and NASA JPL. He has also co-founded multiple companies, most recently Universal Hydrogen – a company dedicated to the development of a comprehensive carbon-free solution for aviation.

Clarke is a leading expert in aircraft trajectory prediction and optimization, especially as it pertains to the development of flight procedures that reduce the environmental impact of aviation, and in the development and use of stochastic models and optimization algorithms to improve the efficiency and robustness of aircraft, airline, airport, and air traffic operations. As indicated in his 2018 testimony to the Science Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, he is particularly interested in leveraging his expertise to enable increasingly autonomous aircraft-enabled mobility, especially in urban and regional settings.
