Recently Aerospace Engineering Professor James Baeder was named a Technical Fellow of the American Helicopter Society (AHS). AHS Technical Fellowships are granted to Society members whose career-based accomplishments towards the goals and objectives of the vertical flight community constitute an outstanding technical achievement.
Professor Baeder has been a long time contributor, scholar and leader in Aerospace Engineering's Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center, with research interests in the areas of computational aerodynamics and aeroacoustics with specific interest in coupling computational fluid dynamics to comprehensive rotor analysis. Baeder has also led the Department of Aerospace Engineering's foray into wind energy research as thrust leader for wind energy in the University of Maryland Energy Research Center.
Baeder received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Rice University, and both his M.S. and Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from Stanford University. In 2014, Baeder was one of 15 Aerospace Engineering faculty recognized for their outstanding work by the University of Maryland during the 7th Annual University-Wide Celebration of Scholarship and Research.
