Racheal Erhard

Racheal Erhard is a PhD candidate in Aeronautics & Astronautics. Intent on building a sustainable future for aviation, her dissertation research focuses on designing electric propulsion aircraft for regional and urban air transportation. She develops aerodynamic models to compute the flow physics introduced by multi-rotor interactions, assesses the acoustic implications, and leverages computationally efficient models for aircraft design optimization. In her free time, Racheal enjoys getting outdoors for skiing, backpacking, and cycling.
