Rising star shines at Boise State

Jennifer Domanowski has set her sights high, and according to a recent list put out by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), she's well on her way.

The Boise State University undergrad is among “Tomorrow’s Engineering Leaders: The 20 Twenties,” which recognizes top aerospace-bound engineering students from all over the world.

“I think the many challenges surrounding aerospace technology are fascinating and exciting, especially those concerned with finding the right materials that will help protect people, spacecraft and cargo as we explore the unexplored,” Domanowski said. “It has always been my passion and dream to have a career that is devoted to understanding the mysteries of our planet, solar system and universe, while also benefiting humankind.”
 
Domanowski expects to graduate in May with a degree in materials science, and she has focused on thermal analysis and characterization of space flight materials, like polymeric materials. She has completed four NASA internships and is an Idaho Space Grant Consortium Scholar and a member of the Boise State AIAA student chapter. She will get her award from AIAA on March 2 in Washington, D.C.

“Each of these outstanding students from around the world is making significant contributions to their fields of study, ranging from electric propulsion to hypersonics to autonomous vehicles, as well as working to make the world a better place,” AIAA Executive Director Sandy Magnus said. “Their research is shaping not only the future of aerospace, but the future of humanity, and each is uniquely worthy of our praise and this honor.”
