Dr. Willcox is a professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and co-director of the MIT Center for Computational Engineering. Her research develops computational and mathematical methods to support decision-making in the design and operation of complex systems. One major focus of her research is on methods to improve the effectiveness of computational models in the early stages of aircraft design. Dr. Willcox will talk about the challenges and opportunities in designing the next generation of sustainable aerospace systems, and how mathematical modeling and numerical tools play a critical role in moving us forward.
