Jaime Peraire

Jamie Peraire is the H.N. Slater Professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. His research interests include computational aerodynamics — he is also the director of the Aerospace Computational Design Lab — as well as simulation-based design and numerical analysis. His work has applications in the areas of computational compressible-fluid dynamics and other multidisciplinary problems in aeronautics. Several software products based on Peraire’s research — in particular, the FELISA suite of codes — are used throughout the aerospace industry.
