Bryan Boling is an engineer in the RAND Corporation's Engineering and Applied Sciences (EAS) Department. At RAND he works primarily within Arroyo, Project AIR FORCE, NSRD, and HSOAC. Prior to joining RAND his research efforts involved environmental policy in civil aviation, including the Aircraft CO2 Standard and EU Emission Trading Scheme. He was the Theodore von Kármán fellow at RWTH Aachen University, and has collaborated with the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) regarding the development of a formalized methodology for the identification and evaluation of policy mixes aimed at CO2 mitigation in civil aviation. He has worked as a graduate research assistant at the Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL) of Georgia Tech where he focused on air transportations systems, robust decision making, probabilistic modeling, system-of-systems, and analytical mechanics. His past research at the ASDL has spanned military vehicle design (Marine Personnel Carrier), technology evaluations for aircraft, system-of-systems studies of the U.S. National Airspace System, and CO2 policy analysis in aviation. Boling received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.
