James Daffron

Graduate Research Assistant, MS.

Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville


    I have been working with the Fiber and Composites Manufacturing Facility since January of 2018 both as an undergraduate researcher and now as a masters student. I spent my undergraduate time studying biomedical engineering and still have a passion for composites in biomedical applications. More recently, I have been the leading graduate student on a hypersonic composites materials research project. In working with this, I have found a passion for aerospace and especially hypersonic and the application of composites in this field. 

    Research Interests

    Aerospace/Biomedical applications of composites. Especially hypersonic applications.
