Michelle Lynde is an aerospace engineer who conducts aerodynamic analysis of configurations using Computational Fluid Dynamics tools, wind tunnel experiments and flight tests. Like other women at NASA, she makes history every day by contributing to groundbreaking missions and projects in the areas of space, science and aeronautics. Women at the agency are dedicated to inspiring the next generation of explorers to break new boundaries.
Lynde’s work at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, mainly focuses on aircraft design methods to improve aerodynamic performance. As an early-career professional, she’s already helped develop a new computationally-based design method to reshape aircraft wings to enable natural laminar flow technology on typical commercial aircraft.
