Dr. Michael Rogers is the Associate Project Manager for the Transformational Tools and Technologies (T3) Project in the Transformative Aeronautics Concepts Program (TACP). The T3 Project is responsible for developing physics-based, cross-cutting tools and advancing critical aeronautics technologies, enabling the development of revolutionary, multidisciplinary aeronautics concepts that can transform aviation. Dr. Rogers received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1986 and has been working at NASA Ames since that time. He has worked extensively on the Direct Numerical Simulation of canonical turbulent flows, generating cutting edge simulations to help guide the development of promising new turbulence modeling ideas. He is the recipient of a NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 1995 and a NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal in 2010.
