Joey Habeck

Joey Habeck is a former member of NASA’s Minnesota Space Grant High-Altitude Ballooning Team, where he focused on stratospheric aerosol measurements. His Ph.D. dissertation work involved utilizing these data as inputs to simulations of hypersonic flows to study particle-induced boundary layer transition and vehicle surface damage.

Joey earned his bachelor’s (2018), master’s (2022), and doctoral (2023) degrees from the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. He is currently a staff member at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, MD, where he works as an aerothermal engineer focusing on hypersonic aerothermodynamics research.
