Executive Team

Howdy! Meet Your 2020-2021 Executive team

Collin Invie
Howdy, I am junior aerospace engineering major from Woodbury, MN. While at Texas A&M I have participated in undergraduate research, the engineering honors program, a Co-Op and an aerospace industry internship. All of these have given me a better perspective of the opportunities available within the aerospace industry which I plan to bring and share with our members.
Alexander Gross
Howdy, I am a Junior Aerospace Engineering major with minors in Mathematics and Computer Science from Coppell, TX. While at Texas A&M, I have participated in the Engineering Honors program, multiple design teams, and undergraduate research under Dr. Valasek in the Vehicle Systems and Control Laboratory. The experiences AIAA and Texas A&M have granted me have forever shaped my career aspirations. I plan to apply my experience and passion for aerospace in all efforts and aim to spearhead initiatives to increase opportunities for our members.
Joseph Kusko
Howdy, I am a senior aerospace engineering major (also pursuing a minor in meteorology) from Katy, TX. I joined AIAA at the start of my junior year and found the organization to be a great conduit between students and individuals in industry. I hope to strengthen that connection in addition to the connection between our members. I have also participated in undergraduate research and the engineering honors program; feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
Mitchell Mu
A Senior Aerospace Engineering student at Texas A&M University minoring in Business from New York City. He is an undergraduate research assistant at MAESTRO Lab at Texas A&M University focusing on Aerodynamics and Aero-acoustics. He plans to pursue a career in Aerodynamics, Acoustics, Sustainability, Manufacturing, Production, and Business.
Ali Khowaja
A Senior Aerospace Engineering student at Texas A&M University minoring in Mathematics and Computer Science from Texas. He is an undergraduate research assistant at the Land, Air, Space, and Robotics (LASR) Lab at Texas A&M University focusing on machine vision and automation. He plans to pursue a career in robotics, machine vision, automation, dynamics, and controls.
Aaron Buitron
Howdy, I am a Senior Aerospace Engineer from Portland, TX. I believe that it is important to give back to my fellow members and students, so that they get to experience something that will help them grow academically and professionally during their time at college.
Dr. Christopher Limbach
Professor Limbach is director of the Laser Diagnostics and Plasma Devices Lab (LDPDL) at Texas A&M University. He obtained B.S. degrees in Engineering Physics and Astronomy from the University of Arizona in 2009 and a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University in 2015. At Texas A&M he has been leading the development of advanced, non-intrusive laser diagnostic techniques for measuring plasma parameters and species composition in dissociated, ionized and non-equilibrium flows with applications to ground test facilities, propulsion, plasma science and plasma chemical processing.

Officer Team

Adam Johnston
I'm a senior Aerospace Engineering major also obtaining a Computer Science Minor. I joined AIAA Fall of 2019 and designed this website with the help of our Web Development team listed below. I am also a team lead for the SpaceCRAFT Virtual Reality Simulations project led by Dr. Chamitoff.
Jonathan Lephuoc
Howdy! I am a senior aerospace engineering major with a minor in computer science and mathematics from Tomball, TX. I joined AIAA as our Events Chair back in Fall 2019 in order to play a bigger part in the aerospace engineering community and to help further the passion that all aerospace engineers here at Texas A&M have for the aerospace industry. Thanks and gig 'em!
Jose Rivas
Howdy! I am a senior studying Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University with a Minor in Mathematics. If you’ve taken the bus, chances are you may have seen me as I also drive the Aggie Spirit buses for work. AIAA has been such an eye-opening experience and has opened me to many possibilities within aerospace engineering. Gig’em!
Alexander Pannell
Howdy, I am a junior Aerospace Engineering major from San Antonio, TX. I am also pursuing minors in Astrophysics and Mathematics. I joined AIAA my sophomore year to connect with other Aero students and get involved in the major. I believe that the experiences AIAA can provide lead to positive change and development for any student interested in the aerospace industry.
