Mark Costello is a professor in the Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering and the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering. He is the Director of Center for Advanced Machine Mobility (CAMM), a multidisciplinary research center consisting of a network of faculty and students focused on mobile platform technologies. Professor Costello's research efforts are focused in the area of dynamics, control, and design with application to a variety of flight vehicles, including rotorcraft, projectiles, parafoils, and unmanned air vehicles. When not engaged in technical activities, Mark enjoys paragliding, playing tennis, throwing pots, and rebuilding vintage Locke lawn mowers.
Benjamin León is an M.S. student in the Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech. He received a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech with highest honors in 2015. His research interests include the characterization and design of mechatronic systems for innovative solutions to engineering challenges. During his free time Ben enjoys playing tennis and traveling to unique locations for rock climbing and backpacking.
Arjun Krishnan is a Ph.D. student in the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering. He earned a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering with Highest Honors in 2016 and a M.S. in Aerospace Engineering in 2018 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. His current research interests include autonomous system identification of UAVs, and Airborne wind energy harvesting. Outside the lab, he enjoys camping, hiking and adventure biking in the great outdoors with his brother Ashwin.
Ashwin Krishnan is a Ph.D. Student in the Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech. He has been a lifelong student of the physical world, ever intrigued by physical phenomena and how masterfully manipulating them can lead to engineering marvels. He picked up a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering with Highest Honors in 2016 and a M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering in 2018. Both from Georgia Tech, of course. His current research efforts include autonomous system identification of UAVs and wind energy harvesting using parafoils with in-canopy actuators. When he isn’t trying to push the limits of human capabilities or knowledge, he can be found hiking, biking, camping or kayaking in the great outdoors with his brother, Arjun. Also, he wrote this entire bio in the third person.
