UMD Student Awarded Wings Foundation Scholarship


Department of Aerospace Engineering honors student Rowan Quintero received a 2023 Wings Foundation Scholarship. The Wings Club Foundation Scholarships support outstanding students pursuing advanced education and future careers in aviation, aeronautics and astronautics.

Quintero is an aerospace engineering undergraduate student in the air track, and currently works with Associate Professor Stuart Laurence in the High-Speed Aerodynamics and Propulsion Laboratory (HAPL).

“I specialize in implementing various molecular tagging velocimetry techniques within our hypersonic wind tunnels at HAPL, alongside building image processing software for comprehensive data analysis,” explained Quintero. “Utilizing high-powered laser systems provided through my internship with AEDC Hypervelocity Tunnel 9, I can produce highly accurate velocity measurements for our lab.”

Previously, Quintero worked in the Space Systems Lab where he published his first co-authored paper on the testing of crew interfaces for an advanced exploration rover.

Looking ahead, he aims to pursue graduate school with the goal of developing expertise in experimental aerodynamics, and develop a career dedicated to advancing aviation.

Outside of engineering, Quintero serves as the social media manager and safety officer for the University of Maryland Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club.
