University of Virginia, Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (2020)

University of Virginia, B.S. in Aerospace Engineering (2015)


Edem completed his Ph.D. in mechanical & aerospace engineering working on a project funded by Rolls-Royce North America Inc., and under the mentorship of Dr. Eric Loth. His research focused on aerospace icing and icephobic surfaces, and aimed at studying icing physics (impact/aerospace ice and static ice), ranging from accretion on small samples and icephobic coatings to adhesion measurement. He is now involved in various projects with a focus on fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, aerodynamics, and controls.
