News Jaime Peraire, the H. N. Slater Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics, has been named the next head of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AeroAstro).

Peraire’s research interests include computational aerodynamics — he is also the director of the Aerospace Computational Design Lab — as well as simulation-based design and numerical analysis.

His work has applications in the areas of computational compressible-fluid dynamics and other multidisciplinary problems in aeronautics. Several software products based on Peraire's research — in particular, the FELISA suite of codes — are used throughout the aerospace industry.

In 1988, Peraire received the Young Researcher Award in Computational Mechanics given by the International Association in Computational Mechanics (IACM); in 1997, he received a NASA Exceptional Achievement Award. He is a fellow of the IACM and an honorary professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Wales, Swansea.
