Jacob Krispin :: President & CEO

Jacob has more than thirty years of experience in research and development (R&D), and engineering  and management work. His career  encompasses work in a national laboratory (Israel),  and in academia and small  corporations (US), where he was responsible for the conception, planning, direction,  and execution of highly innovative programs.  Jacob is the  inventor on US and foreign patents,  he is an Associate Fellow with the American Institute of  Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), and he is a referee for AIAA journals, Journal of Computational Physics, SIAM journal for Scientific and Statistical Computing, International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids, among others. His main R&D work include modern numerical schemes addressing gas dynamics and fluid flow phenomena, ranging from low speed to high Mach number flows, including turbulence, aerothermodynamics, shock waves and wave reflections, viscous and inviscid flows, etc. (1984-present) and applied and classical aerodynamics, in particular missile aerodynamics and high-angle-of-attack phenomena (1977-1989). Jacob has more than fifty publications in refereed journals, conference proceedings, and company technical reports. He held Visiting faculty positions with the Mathematics and Cemical Engineering Departments at the University of Maryland. Education: B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the Technion, Haifa, Isreal (1977 and 1984, respectively) and Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1987.


Peter Bernard :: Chief Technology Officer & Research Scientist

Peter  has been an engineering educator for more than 30 years.  His research has focussed on the modeling of turbulent flows via vorticity transport theory; the development of Lagrangian techniques for studying the physics of turbulent transport; and most recently, the application of vortex methods to turbulent flow prediction.  He is the author of more than 50 journal and conference articles  as well as a graduate textbook surveying the field of turbulent flow analysis, measurement and prediction.He has been a Professor Associe a l'Universite de Claude Bernard, Lyon, France in 1986 and a visiting Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley in 1993/94.  For his research in turbulent flow he was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 1998.Education: B.S. (M.E.) degree from the City College of CUNY in 1972, and a M.S. in 1973 and Ph.D. in 1977 from the University of California, Berkeley.
