About the speakers:
Dr. Jason Cassibry is an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and affiliated with the Propulsion Research Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. His research involves thermonuclear fusion for interplanetary propulsion and terrestrial power and fundamental studies of plasmas with application to acceleration and implosion dynamics. Specific research areas include magneto-inertial fusion, MHD modeling, smoothed particle hydrodynamics. He is the PI of the Charger Facility, a 3 Terawatt pulsed power laboratory to be utilized for z-pinch fusion of lithium deuteride, pulsed magnetic nozzles, and laboratory astrophysics.
Dr. Robert Frederick was recognized as the UAHuntsville College of Engineering Outstanding Senior Faculty member in 2010 in recognition of his consistent record of achievement in research, teaching and service. Dr. Frederick joined UAHuntsville in 1991 and is currently a Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Interim Director of the Propulsion Research Center. His research investigates combustion phenomena in solid, liquid and hybrid rocket propellants and has identified important technologies for next-generation missile propulsion.
Dr. Frederick's contributions to education have been recognized by the UAH Foundation Award for Distinguished Teaching. He is an Associate Fellow of the AIAA and a member of the American Society of Engineering Educators. He has been the national chairman of the AIAA Hybrid Rocket Technical Committee, and the U.S. representative to a NATO Advisory Group on solid rocket propellants. He currently serves on NASA's National Institute of Rocket Propulsion Systems.
