Serhat Hosder elected Royal Aeronautical Society Fellow

Dr. Serhat Hosder

The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) has elected Dr. Serhat Hosder, a professor of aerospace engineering in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department of Missouri University of Science and Technology, as a fellow in the oldest international professional institution devoted to the aerospace community.

Hosder, who has been at S&T since 2007 and serves as director of the Aerospace Simulations Laboratory, is also an Associate Fellow of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)  and a member of the AIAA Hypersonic Technologies and Aerospace Planes (HyTASP) Technical Committee (TC). He was the most recent chair of HyTASP TC and currently serves in the steering committee of this international organization in hypersonic systems and technologies.

Prof. Hosder’s research activities focus on the fields of computational aerothermodynamics, multi-fidelity modeling, uncertainty quantification and reduction of hypersonic technologies, aerothermochemistry of particle-laden hypersonic flows, planetary entry/descent/landing of spacecraft, and aerodynamic shape optimization. His research has been funded by NASA,  Missile Defense Agency, NSF, and industry. These research activities have resulted in over 100 publications co-authored by Dr. Hosder and his graduate students, who have also received prestigious fellowships and awards from NASA and Missouri S&T during their studies.  

Fellowship of the Royal Aeronautical Society is the highest honor achievable and is only given to those in the profession of aeronautics or aerospace who have made an outstanding contribution to the profession, attained a position of high responsibility, or have had long experience of high quality in the profession.

The Royal Aeronautical Society is a British multi-disciplinary professional society dedicated to the global aerospace community and exists to further advance aeronautical art, science and engineering around the world. Established in 1866, the RAeS has been at the forefront of developments in aerospace, seeking to promote the highest professional standards and provide a central forum for sharing knowledge.
