J. Travis HunsuckerAssistant Professor of Ocean Engineering at Florida Tech
J. Travis Hunsucker, Ph. D. is an Assistant Professor of Ocean Engineering at Florida Tech His research focus areas are ship hydrodynamics, frictional drag of biofouling, wave mechanics, and dynamics of marine spacecraft recovery. He has worked with the US Navy, IMO, NASA, various shipping firms, and multiple coating companies. As the director of the Applied Hydromechanics Lab at Florida Tech, Professor Hunsucker and his research group focus on hydrodynamic field testing for fouling control coatings, experimental hydrodynamics of fouled surfaces, and quantification of drag at full scale on ships.
