Education and Experience
Kevin Reynolds is a civil servant aerospace engineer at NASA Ames with prior experience in the aerospace industry. In 2010, he began his career at Ames as a graduate intern from Stanford University supporting a 6-month Innovative Partnerships Program seedling fund under the leadership of senior researcher Nhan Nguyen. Reynolds later graduated from Stanford with a dual M.S degree in Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering as a National Science Foundation, Reid Weaver Dennis Aero/Astro department, and Stanford Graduate School of Business INSIGHT program fellow. He joined NASA Ames as a civil servant performing optimization studies for wing shaping concepts. Prior to work at NASA, Reynolds was employed as a configuration engineer in the product development group for Boeing Commercial Aircraft in Everett, Washington. There, he worked on several aerodynamic and propulsion trade studies, including the N+3 advanced aircraft concepts through the Boeing Research SUGAR program. In his role as liaison to Boeing program managers, he also conducted financial and risk analysis based on design decisions for derivative aircraft. Other professional experiences include prior work through international partnerships with CERN in Switzerland, BMW Technology in Germany, Hitachi in Japan, and Golden Key International in China. Kevin received a dual B.S. in Physics and Mathematics with a minor in Electronics as a DNIMAS scholar at Norfolk State University.
