Timothee Pourpoint

Associate Professor
Aeronautics And Astronautics
West Lafayette
Dr. Timothee Pourpoint is an Associate Professor in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics and by courtesy in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. In 2000, he obtained his undergraduate degree from ESTACA University in Paris, France and, following a one-year overlap, his MS degree from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. His education in aerospace engineering continued with his Ph.D. from Purdue in 2005. With the Maurice Zucrow laboratories expanding, he had the opportunity to start his own research program in propulsion and energy conversion systems. In 2013, he transitioned from a Research Faculty track to his current position. Dr. Pourpoint's on-going research focuses on the engineering and detailed characterization of novel materials and on the tailoring of their performance or behavior to specific propulsion systems and energy management requirements.
