Dani is a Ph.D. student in the Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) department at Duke University under the advisement of Dr. Earl Dowell. Dani is currently researching the application of Volterra Series theory as a practical engineering tool for creating unsteady aerodynamic models from CFD data. The research focuses on real-world aeroelastic analysis challenges as can be encountered in the aerospace industry.
Dani graduated with B.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in 2003. After graduation, he started working at Israeli aerospace industry as a Structural and Aeroelasticity Engineer. He actively participated in the development process of various projects, performed analyses, planned and executed structural and vibrational tests. Dani completed his M.Sc. degree in Aerospace Engineering while working and graduated in 2010 from the Technion. Dani’s research interests include non-linear Aeroelasticity, Structural Dynamics, Vibrations, Composite Structures, Structural Testing, and Experimental Modal Analysis.
Besides research, Dani is interested in radio controlled planes and gliders, composites design and fabrication, hobby electronics and electric transportation.
