Emmanuel Nyangweso’s multiple responsibilities.
As a control systems engineer, Nyangweso, of Kenyan descent, manages mechanical, electrical and control systems engineering projects for the National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Complex at the NASA Ames Research Center.
The class of 2014 graduate of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor College of Engineering with a BS in Mechanical Engineering interned at NASA Johnson Space Center once and at NASA Ames twice.
So, if you want to know why the successful prediction and management of battery life that using prognostic algorithms through ground, and flight, tests is essential for performance evaluation of unmanned aerial vehicles. Just ask Nyangweso.
The American-born engineer, whose parents are from East Africa, is also obsessed with everything about motorcycles.
He says his favorite book is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values by Robert M. Pirsig.
The geekiest thing about him is that he likes to work on motorcycles, and the non-geekiest thing is racing motorcycles on the race track.
