Felipe Viana is an assistant professor at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UCF. The vast majority of Viana's work has been applied to new designs and the improvement of fielded products with a focus on aircraft propulsion, power generation, and oil and gas systems. Over the years, his research has generated a number of peer-reviewed publications and patents. He serves as review editor for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization and as a reviewer in top journals and conferences.

Before joining UCF, Viana was a senior scientist at GE Renewable Energy, where he led the development of state-of-the art computational methods for improving wind energy asset performance and reliability. Prior to that, he spent five years at GE Global Research, where he lead and conducted research on services engineering, design and optimization under uncertainty, and probabilistic analysis of engineering systems.
