Upon completing a year of travel through South America and Southeast Asia on a Bonderman Fellowship, Luke arrived on the East Coast to pursue a graduate degree in Aeronautics & Astronautics at MIT. With experience in group and project leadership as well as workplace design, Luke is especially interested in the business considerations of aerospace design. He recently led a seminar hosted by the MIT Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment and the MIT International Center for Air Transportation on “Airline Network Fuel Burn Reduction using Cruise Altitude and Speed Optimization”.
After completing his masters of science in Aeronautical Engineering, Luke would like to pursue a career in aviation operations and strategy or commercial test flight. Luke really enjoys finding fresh ways to merge his love of piloting and business with his training in engineering design.
