Dr. ir. Mark Voskuijl
Teacher of the year at Aerospace Engineering, 2013
Mark Voskuijl has been Assistant Professor in Flight Performance and Propulsion at Delft University of Technology since 2007. He is responsible for lectures, projects and final thesis work related to flight performance and is coordinator of the Master track Flight Performance and Propulsion. He is a specialist in the field of aircraft performance and is the (co)author of about 50 relevant publications (journals, book chapters, conference papers, patents).
Before joining Delft University, Mark completed his PhD at the Flight Science and Technology research group of the University of Liverpool within the ‘helicopter active control technology’ project, which focused on the benefits of novel active control concepts, applied to the mutual improvement of handling qualities, flight envelope protection and structural load alleviation for helicopters. This project involved close collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada. Extensive use was made of their advanced systems research aircraft, a fly-by-wire Bell 412 helicopter.
Mark’s interest and passion for the field of aircraft performance was originally sparked by work placements as a graduate student at the handling qualities department of Boeing Helicopters and the helicopters and aeroacoustics department of the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR).
