Mr. D’Silva is an aerospace engineer. He has vast experiences in Siemens NX, MATLAB, LabVIEW and Advanced Aircraft Analysis (AAA). As an undergraduate student, Mr. D’Silva led an engine design team that took second place in the 2013 AIAA/International Gas Turbine Institute (IGTI) engine design competition. During his master’s degree, he was part of the graduate aircraft design team that took second place in the 2014 AIAA aircraft design competition. Mr. D’Silva’s master’s thesis was on the investigation on entropy signature of objects using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and wind tunnel testing.
