Mayank Chetan is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
His current research focus is on the aero-elastic instability of wind turbine structures, turbine loads analysis under extreme conditions and techno-economic analysis of offshore structures. Additionally, he has worked on the structural dynamics of extreme scale wind turbine blades and the development of tools required for the analysis of extreme scale wind turbine structures.
He defended his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas under the supervision of Dr. D Todd Griffith. Before joining graduate school, Mayank worked at Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India Pvt Ltd in Warranty Analysis. He was also involved in the research and development of electronic prototyping kits to help promote STEM education. During his free time he likes hiking in the Rocky Mountains and running unnecessary scientific computations on his home-made cluster.
