Professor Bryan Palaszewski

Bryan Palaszewski has worked at the NASA Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field since 1989 and is currently directing research on high performance propellants. The current focus of his research is in nanoparticle metal additives for gelled liquid fuels, and solid hydrogen for atomic propellants. He recently led the Fire Prevention - Accident Mitigation aspects of the NASA /FAA Aviation Safety Program, investigating ways of making aircraft and their fuels safer. He led the NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) special topic for commercializing safer, denser propellants.

For six years, he led many studies of advanced space systems for orbital and interplanetary travel at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He was also the lead propulsion subsystem engineer on the Ocean Topography Experiment (TOPEX) for three years, as well as being involved other flight projects such as the Galileo Mission to Jupiter and the Cassini Mission to Saturn.

He holds a Master of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the City College of New York. His Masters thesis dealt with low Reynolds Number flow in the human eye and its linkage to glaucoma.
