What are some of your current projects or research interests?

My current research focuses on tilt-rotor whirl flutter. My previous studies examined flight simulations of the operational and limit maneuvers of the rotorcraft and the resulting loads acting on the rotors and the airframe, which resulted in a paper titled "A Convergence Study for a Longitudinal Maneuver by Using Various Tools" presented at Forum 72.
