Peraza Hernandez obtained his Ph.D. and B.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2016 and 2012, respectively. His research integrates structural mechanics, design optimization, active materials, and principles of origami and tensegrity. He is the author of one book and more than 28 technical publications in archival journals and conference proceedings and has received two best paper awards. The overarching goal of Peraza Hernandez's research is the development of aerospace structures with optimal properties such as minimal mass, minimal energy usage, and tailorable stiffness.
