Meet our Faculty Thursday! Each Thursday we will introduce one of our faculty members and give you a chance to get to know who works within our department. This week is Dr. Prasad.

Dr. Chitrarth Prasad is an Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Oklahoma State University. His current research interests involve using advanced mathematical techniques to study turbulent flow behavior in engineering applications.

Outside of work, Dr. Prasad trains in multiple martial arts styles, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling and Muay Thai, finding balance and discipline through his practice. He is also a big sports fan, especially of college football, and enjoys cheering for Penn State. Dr. Prasad also has two dogs and loves spending time outdoors with them

Research Spotlight! Each week we plan to highlight one of our faculty members and share some insight on their current research.

This week we have Dr. Brian Elbing.

"Our work recording infrasound from the OSIRIS-REx Sample Recovery Capsule. We had two groups involved in recording this and working with NASA Jet Propulsion Lab and Sandia National Labs.

Group 1 (ground) - I sent Kate Spillman (undergrad), Real KC (PhD student), Trevor Wilson (PhD student) and Doug Fox (technician and OSU alum) to the Utah/Nevada border to record the low frequency wave from this hypersonic reentry. We also teamed up with Milton Garces from the University of Hawaii and his team and plan to do some comparative studies between his observations and ours.

Group 2 (balloon) - Emalee Hough and Zach Yap were deployed in Eureka, Nevada to assist NASA JPL with the launching of high-altitude balloons before dawn so that they would have infrasound sensors floating at altitude when the capsule flew overhead."

Both Dr. Brian Elbing and Dr. Jamey Jacob were the principal investigators for this work.


Happy Halloween. Have a spooky day cowboys!


Happy Homecoming Weekend! We hope to see everyone enjoying the festivities this weekend. Go Pokes 🧡🖤


We are hosting a bake sale today in our lobby! Stop by and enjoy some yummy treats 🧡

Congratulations to MAEs very own Kurt Rouser!!

Today is the final day we're sharing profiles of a select few of TBP's nearly 1,000 volunteers. National Volunteer Month may be nearing its end, but that doesn't mean their dedication will go unnoticed! Regardless of how large or small your role in TBP is, we at HQ want to express our gratitude and admiration for each member who offers their time to the Association.

Meet Lt. Col. Kurt P. Rouser, Ph.D., OH H ’11, who held the positions of vice president of the Ohio Eta chapter in 2010-11, chief advisor for Colorado Zeta from 2012-16, Charter president and secretary of the Pikes Peak Alumni Chapter from 2013-16, and member of the Outstanding Advisor selection subcommittee from 2021-22. Currently, he is the chief advisor for the Oklahoma Gamma chapter (2017), and Charter president and secretary for the Pioneer Alumni Chapter (2017). He has been a member of the alumni committee at annual Conventions and has presented Engineering Futures and professional development sessions. In 2019, he was the recipient of the TBP Outstanding Advisor Award.

Dr. Rouser is an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Oklahoma State University (OSU). He holds a B.S. in aeronautical engineering from the US Air Force Academy (USAFA), an M.S. in aviation science from OSU, and both an M.S. in aeronautical engineering and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT). During his 21 years in the Air Force, he served as a technical analyst at the National Air Intelligence Center, maintenance engineer and executive officer at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center, and operations officer at Arnold Engineering Development Center. Dr. Rouser served eight years on the USAFA faculty in the aeronautics department. After retiring from the Air Force in 2016, he transitioned into his current OSU position, teaching and researching aerospace propulsion and power. He is married and has seven children.

Thank you, Dr. Rouser, and thank you again to every TBP volunteer!
