The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics announced that Steven E.  Gorrell, an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University, is the institute’s new vice president-elect for education.

He and the other newly elected board members will begin their terms of office May 10.

AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. With more than 35,000 individual members worldwide and 90 corporate members, AIAA brings together industry, academia and government to advance engineering and science in aviation, space and defense.

Gorrell joined the BYU faculty in 2007 following an 18-year career as an aerospace engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory Propulsion Directorate. He is an internationally recognized leader in the use of technology to investigate and understand unsteady flow physics in high-performance gas turbine engine fans and compressors.

A BYU alumnus, Gorrell received a master’s degree from Virginia Tech and a doctorate from Iowa State University, both in mechanical engineering

That may soon change. Recently, students from BYU’s College of Engineering teamed up with Nanos Foundation to develop a nanofiber membrane that can be sandwiched between the cloth pieces in a homemade mask, increasing efficacy up to 99%.
