SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS
Dr. Patrick E. Hanley, is the owner and founder of Hanley Innovations, a leader in aerodynamics conceptual & preliminary analysis software for education and industry. Dr. Hanley earned his B.S. degree (summa cum laude) in aerospace engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York and his S.M. and Ph.D. degrees from the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He also completed his minor in the area of management of innovation and technology at MIT's Sloan School of Management.

After graduating from MIT, Dr. Hanley joined the Mechanical Engineering faculty at the University of Connecticut where he formulated and taught courses in aerodynamics, compressible fluids, introductory fluid mechanics and heat transfer. As a faculty member, he won the highly competitive National Science Foundation Research Initiation Award, the NASA-ASEE Summer Faculty Fellowship and three consecutive research awards from NASA Lewis Research center to study compressible viscous flows in turbomachinery using pseudospectral methods. This research led to the successful education of four (4) Ph.D students and four (4) Masters degree students. In addition Dr. Hanley can be credited with a number of publications including the pioneering work in multi-domain pseudospectral methods for compressible viscous flows entitled "A Strategy for the Efficient Simulation of Viscous Compressible Flows using a Multi-domain Pseudospectral Method" which can be found in Journal of Computational Physics, Vol 108, No. 1, pp. 153-158, September 1993.

As owner and chief software author of Hanley Innovations, Dr. Hanley has written a number of aerodynamics software packages for the PC under the Windows operating system.
