Dr. Bonnefoy is co-leading a number of groups within the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) Working Group on CORSIA (WG4) and contributing to several ICAO CAEP groups; MDG, FESG, WG3 and FTG. He is also the former co-rapporteur of the ICAO CAEP Modeling and Database Group (MDG).
Dr. Bonnefoy has over 17 years of experience in data and decision analytics in the air transportation industry. He started and led the Data and Decision Science group at Booz Allen Hamilton in Aviation, Energy and Environment. He was also Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he conducted research in several areas related to; air transportation, energy and the environment. At MIT, he lectured on flight vehicle engineering, airport development and operations, and the mitigation of environmental impacts of aviation. He also worked and consulted for aviation operators and startups as well as private equity firms.
Dr. Bonnefoy holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Systems and a Master of Science in Aeronautics & Astronautics both from MIT and a bachelor in Aerospace Engineering from Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal in Canada. Dr. Bonnefoy received an award as part of a group Superior Honor Award by the U.S. State Department in 2016 and the 2010 Outstanding Faculty of the Year Award by the Federal Aviation Administration. He is on the Advisory Board of the Aviation Sustainability Center (ASCENT) and the Airline Group of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (AGIFORS). He also holds a private pilot license with instrument and seaplane ratings.
Luke Jensen, PhD
Dr. Luke Jensen is Senior Associate in aviation analytics at BlueSky. He specializes in modeling, analysis, and the development of aviation, energy, and environmental policy. His focus areas include airline network, market, and business case assessments.
Dr. Jensen has over 9 years of experience in analytics, modeling and policy development related to the operational and environmental performance of the air transportation system. At Aurora Flight Sciences he managed a team of 165 engineers developing a cutting-edge commercial autonomous flight vehicle. He was a Research Assistant and Post-Doctoral Associate at MIT where he focused on data-driven flight procedure simulation and noise analysis. His research and publications span the areas of air transportation systems engineering, air traffic management modernization, airline operations, and environmental impact analysis. Prior to MIT, he was crew chief of the University of Washington Aeronautical Lab (Kirsten Wind Tunnel) in Seattle. He also worked on a private-sector space launch passenger safety system for Blue Origin.
Dr. Jensen holds a Ph.D. and Master of Science in Aeronautics & Astronautics, both from MIT, and a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautics & Astronautics from the University of Washington. Dr. Jensen received the FAA COE Student of the Year; AGIFORS Airline Operations Conference Best Innovation Award (2014); Bonderman Travel Fellowship (University of Washington Honors Program); and the Prof. Victor Ganzer Memorial Fund in Aeronautics & Astronautics (UW Aeronautics & Astronautics). He holds commercial and instructor pilot licenses and has over 1000 hours of flight experience.
Mr. Nadir Ougazzaden is Associate in aviation analytics at BlueSky. He specializes in system engineering, modeling, and analysis.
Mr. Ougazzaden received his B.S and M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. As part of his M.S., he was a Research Assistant at the Aerospace Systems Design Lab (ASDL) at Georgia Tech where his research focused on new generation low-boom supersonic aircraft fleet assessment and route analysis (in support of an ASCENT project for the FAA center of Excellence for Alternative Jet Fuels and Environment).
At Georgia Tech, he was the student lead of the Aerospace Propulsion Outreach Program sponsored by the Army Research Laboratory. He was involved in Undergraduate Research focused on the ice formation and ingestion by gas turbine engines at ASDL.
Mr. Ougazzaden also has global experience. He was a System Engineer intern at the French Ministry of Defense where he worked in the propulsion testing division.
