Shashank Natesh
Senior Thermal Engineer

Shashank Natesh is a Senior Thermal Engineer at Zunum Aero. He is eager to leverage his dexterity in high-fidelity and first-principle thermo-fluid modeling to tackle the design challenges of Zunum’s powertrain thermal management system. Shashank, who spent his formative years in India, secured a MS in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Houston and later completed a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State University and University of California-Davis. Sponsored by NASA’s STRO Early Stage Innovations program, his doctoral studies involved a novel passive phase change thermal management concept for microgravity applications. Shashank has an enduring passion for soccer, enjoys cycling and spirited driving, and to this day misses unwinding his WRX on Oregon’s deserted countryside roads.
