Colloquium Series: Dr. Jennifer Kitaygorsky

Please join us this Friday, Sept. 25 at 3PM in NC 3405 for our next colloquium speaker. Dr. Kitaygorsky is a CU Denver Physics alum who is here to share her work in aerospace with us.

Electromagnetics in Practice:
How Airplanes Survive Lightning and Other Electromagnetic Environments



In this talk, I will discuss how the field of electromagnetics applies to aircraft and spacecraft design and aircraft certification. I will focus on electromagnetic environmental effects such as lightning, precipitation static, high intensity radiated fields, spacecraft charging, and the broader field of electromagnetic compatibility. I will also cover what it's like to be a scientist and a consultant for the aerospace industry.



Jennifer Kitaygorsky received a B.S. in Physics from the University of Colorado at Denver in 2001, and a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester Electrical Engineering Department in 2008. As an undergraduate, she was a recipient of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Professional Research Experience Program (PREP) Fellowship. It was followed by a fellowship from the Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CFDR) Junior Scientist Program when Jennifer was attending the University of Rochester. Jennifer currently works for a consulting company, Electro Magnetic Applications (EMA), as a scientist

Jennifer specializes in validation and verification of computational electromagnetics codes, making use of her extensive experimental experience. She is also an expert in measuring electromagnetic properties of anisotropic composite materials and nanomaterials. In addition, Jennifer has consulted for major civilian and military aerospace prime integrators, as well as evaluated inductive interference coupling on railroad tracks from high voltage power lines. She has developed full-wave computational electromagnetic (CEM) simulation, converted CAD drawings to sophisticated numerical models, and performed measurements of RF shielding and EM properties of novel and mission-critical materials. Jennifer has been with EMA since 2008.
