Research Interests

Santiago is conducting research focused on learning the behavior of cantilever plates as prototypes of a wing undergoing buckling. He started doing research in the Fall of 2021 and continues to collect and analyze data of the linear and nonlinear behavior of the plate under a range of loading conditions. He is passionate about the fields of aircraft design, propulsion, and vibrational systems.
