Ep. 10 - Aircraft Design, Modification & Development ft. Andrea Cartile

By Jeremy Ullman

Our guest this week is PhD candidate, professional procrastinator and aerospace industry expert Andrea Cartile! In a nutshell, she does stuff with airplanes, but more specifically she optimizes communication in the domain of aircraft modification. Her research lies in information management, and she seeks to answer questions like "how do you take an existing airplane and make changes to it?" and "what do you need to prove that an aircraft modification is equally safe or safer than the original design?" Andrea never shies away from a challenge, in fact, she specifically seeks out the hard stuff! She's gritty, has a great attitude and killer work ethic. Excelling in the biological sciences and then pivoting to engineering, Andrea has proven herself to be a true jack of all trades. Andrea also draws a fascinating connection between the seemingly disparate fields of Engineering and Biology (you don't want to miss this). We discuss the framework and sub-fields of aerospace, Andrea's experience at L'Oreal and the engineering side of cosmetics, the safety and criticality of safety-critical systems, and so much more. We conclude that despite a sure-fire formula for succeeding in graduate school, the importance of maximizing "bum-in-chair" time cannot be overstated. This is a special one, so pop on episode 10 and get in on the discussion!
