My name is Andrew Roginski and I am a first-year master’s student in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University. I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in the Fall of 2019, and I also attended Wabash College from 2013-2017 and received my B.A. in Mathematics. My master’s research will begin in the Summer of 2020 with Professor Weinong Chen and his Impact Science Lab characterizing material properties with respect to high impact/energetic collisions.
