Upon discovering signal processing, however, Electrical Engineering became the degree du jour, and he got an MS in that area. Then, in a move driven by lust, greed, and a desire to take over the world, he accepted a position at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to work on a really frickin' big laser (cue Dr. Evil). Okay, so in reality, it's because he didn't get into the PhD program he wanted, so he had to get a real job. But after a brief stint at LLNL, jmb275 realized his real passion was for all things aircraft related.
jmb275 now attends the University of Michigan pursuing a PhD in Aerospace Engineering emphasizing in flight dynamics and controls. jmb275 particularly enjoys all quips and jokes involving the term "rocket science" and/or "rocket scientist"! In his spare time (wait, what?) he flies R/C planes, helicopters, and anything else that rises above terra firma!
jmb275 is anxious to bring all the day dreamers (i.e. physicists) back down to reality and remind them we live on a little planet called Earth where Newtonian physics are still adequate and have been doing a fine job for over 300 years.
