Dr. Brandon A. Sforzo received dual bachelors degrees in Physics from Ithaca College and Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University in 2008, and continued to Georgia Tech for grad school, completing a MS in Aerospace in 2010 and his PhD in 2014. Brandon's doctoral research was on the topic of ignition performance for gas turbine engines and developed a dual experimental and modeling program to address the problem. He continues to focus on energy and propulsion research and is currently investigating the feasibility of supersonic retro-propulsion as a planetary descent technology.
