BioProfessor Kroo's research involves work in three general areas: multidisciplinary optimization and aircraft synthesis, unconventional aircraft, and low-speed aerodynamics. Current research in the field of aircraft synthesis, sponsored by NASA and industry, includes the development of a new computational architecture for aircraft design, and its integration with numerical optimization. Studies of unconventional configurations employ rapid turnaround analysis methods in the design of efficient subsonic and supersonic commercial aircraft. Recent research has included investigation of configurations such as joined wings, oblique wings, and tailless aircraft. Nonlinear low-speed aerodynamics studies have focused on vortex wake roll-up, refined computation of induced drag, the design of wing tips, and the aerodynamics of maneuvering aircraft.

Lecturer, Civil and Environmental Engineering
BioArchitect and urban designer Danish Kurani is the founder of design firm Kurani (www.kurani.us) and Lecturer at the Stanford School of Engineering.
Since 2013, global leaders such as the Gates Foundation, NYC Department of Education, and Google have trusted Kurani to design education spaces for populations battling social and academic inequalities. In this work, he witnessed how the process of erecting a building is still painful and full of pitfalls.
Kurani is now radically rethinking how buildings are made. His research is advancing the field toward what he calls "Exponential Architecture - a new era of architecture where we meet the needs of all 7-billion people by making buildings exponentially cheaper, faster, and better."
Kurani has been featured in TED, World Economic Forum, Business Insider, NPR, Fast Company, and other international media.
