Jamey D. Jacob is a professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering with funded research in aerospace applications from DARPA, AFOSR, SOCOM, NASA, NextGen Aeronautics, General Electric Aircraft Engines, Boeing, and others. Main research interests include aircraft configuration optimization, low speed aerodynamics, micro- and nano-air vehicles, vortex flows, inflatable wings, active flow control, and wind tunnel and flight testing and other experimental methods, including modern measurement techniques, particularly non-intrusive global methods such as digital particle image velocimetry. Jamey is the author of over 50 papers and technical reports in the areas of aerodynamics, flow control, and fluid mechanics.
Jamey received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Oklahoma in 1990 and his M.S and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 1992 and 1995, respectively. He was a National Research Council Summer Faculty Fellow in the Air Force Research Laboratory at WPAFB in both 2003 and 2004. Jamey spent 10 years as a professor at the University of Kentucky in the Mechanical Engineering Dept.
