Shreyas Subramanian, Ph.D., Director of Research

Dr. Shreyas Subramanian completed his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Purdue University in 2015. He supports NASA initiatives to evaluate the efficiency of NAS operations by designing a Fuel Burn model to estimate flight time, fuel consumption, and flight segment operating costs for all airline flights in the NAS. He is also involved in algorithm design and business logic development of various other NASA projects at Robust Analytics such as a Terminal Area Hidden Markov Risk Model, simulation and modeling of passenger behavior in airport premises, and projects related to the NASA SMART NAS Test Bed (SNTB). As a graduate research assistant working on the NASA System-wide Safety Assurance Technology (SSAT) grant (2013-2014), Dr. Subramanian evaluated the effect of inducing communication faults in ADS-B messages in the NAS. As a graduate research assistant on a grant from NASA and Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) (2012–2013), he integrated detailed aircraft performance models to evaluate UAS operations in existing traffic scenarios, and thereby transform the NAS into a safer, more secure system.
