Laura Paquin

University of Maryland Aerospace Engineering Department
PhD Student
Laura Paquin is a PhD student in the aerospace engineering department at UMD. She is a National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate fellow and also an ARCS scholar. She received her bachelors in aerospace engineering from the University of Notre Dame, and during the summers completed a few internships: one in mass properties at GE Aviation, one in structural analysis at Northrop Grumman in FL, and one in flight dynamics at Northrop Grumman in CA.

Laura is in her fourth year in the High-Speed Aerodynamics & Propulsion Lab (HAPL) where her work has involved developing temperature-sensitive-paint and applying it to wind-tunnel experiments on campus and at NASA Langley, and also conducting supersonic wind-tunnel experiments at an Air Force lab nearby. Her dissertation specifically will involve investigating the effect of wall-cooling on hypersonic boundary layers, using schlieren imagery and TSP.
