About

Christopher Limbach received Bachelor of Science degrees in Engineering Physics and Astronomy from the Univeristy of Arizona in 2009. While at the UofA Chris was involved in research ranging from microfluid measurements with the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) to black hole accretion disk simulation. He is currently attending Princeton University as a graduate student in the Applied Physics Group of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. His current research focuses on hypersonic flight aerodynamics and flow control. This includes morphing structures and electromagnetic flow control using electric discharges, lasers and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). This work can be applied to hypersonic vehicles for atmospheric flight, space launch and reentry.
