Christopher Kaminski is a second-year Ph.D. student in the MEMS department at Duke University. Christopher studies in the Aeroelasticity group under the leadership of Dr. Kenneth Hall. Christopher works on harmonic balance analysis for unsteady aerodynamic phenomena in turbomachinery. He hopes that this research will lead to a greater theoretical and practical understanding of phenomena such as Non-Synchronous Vibration for turbomachinery blades, leading to longer turbofan engine lifespans and greater reliability. Christopher previously received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Central Florida and worked briefly in the aerospace industry on Florida’s Space Coast.
