Brandon Bush Earns '08-'09 Flagship Fellowship

Brandon Bush

Brandon Bush

Aerospace engineering graduate student Brandon Bush has won the 2008-2009 Flagship Fellowship award.

The Flagship Fellowships Program is an initiative of the University of Maryland Graduate School intended to help programs to recruit and retain truly exceptional students. Created through enhancement funding awarded competitively by the Office of the Provost, the Flagship Fellowships embody the university's goal of joining a select group of research institutions widely known for an overall doctoral program that has achieved the highest level of excellence. A committee with broad disciplinary representation, appointed by the Graduate School, serves as the selection committee.

Brandon's doctoral research focuses on the computational study of low Reynold's number aerodynamics, such as the flight of insects and small birds. By understanding the flow physics of these naturally efficient flying creatures, he hopes to be able to contribute to improvements in the aerodynamic efficiency and eventually the commercial viability of current and future generations of micro-air vehicles.
