Mayank Chetan recently defended his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas under the supervision of Dr. D Todd Griffith. His current research is on development and optimization of wind turbines which have active aerodynamic load controls with a focus on blade structure, loads analysis, and control design. 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.
After receiving his bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering, 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 running unnecessary scientific computations on his home-made cluster.
