Adam is adapting liquid composite molding (LCM) to the manufacturing of conformal ablative thermal protection system (TPS) materials. Concurrently, he is developing a supporting methodology to optimize a conformal ablative heatshield for manufacturing that combines tile layout, mold and process design, and TPS material property estimation. Prior to his current work, he designed small reentry vehicles to return from low Earth orbit. Adam is co-advised by Dr. Robert Braun and Dr. Graeme Kennedy.
