Tony Favaloro
Postdoctoral Researcher


Bio


Tony received a Bachelor’s of Science in Aerospace Engineering and a Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics in May 2013 from Mississippi State University. During his time at Mississippi State University, he participated in an internship at NASA Langley Research Center as part of a NASA Academy, participated in a student UAS team which participated in the AUVSI Student UAS competition with a custom built, carbon fiber composites 10 ft. wingspan aircraft, and assisted in composites research under Dr. Thomas E. Lacy, Jr. Tony was awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship in 2013 and earned his Master’s in Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering in August 2015. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering under Dr. R. Byron Pipes focusing in the manufacturing process simulation of discontinuous fiber material systems specifically in the fields of additive manufacturing and molding. During his time under Dr. Pipes, he has spent time working and researching at both Oak Ridge National Labs and Dassault Systemes.
