Chams Eddine Mballo

Chams Eddine Mballo received his bachelor’s degree with a dual major in aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering in 2015 from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo. He is the recipient of three master’s degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology: aerospace engineering (2019); electrical and computer engineering (2020); and mathematics (2021). He remains at Georgia Tech as a Marcus Dash Fellow and PhD student of aerospace engineering. To mitigate the absence of diversity, equity and inclusion in academia, he co-founded an SAT preparatory program that provides tutoring, counseling and mentoring services to underrepresented and underprivileged students in the Buffalo area. An active participant in the Model-Based Life Extending Control for Rotorcraft project funded by the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and NASA under the Vertical Lift Research Center of Excellence at Georgia Tech, his work involves development of real-time algorithms for estimation of helicopter component level dynamic loads. Chams is a tutor in the Minority Education & Development Center and previously served as a teaching assistant, instructor, and subject expert for OneClass. He is a member of the GT Vertical Flight Society and the National Society of Black Engineers. As a future faculty member who believes in the importance of a wide-ranging skillset, his desire is to create new courses that merge his engineering and math specialties.
