David C. Wilcox was born in Wilmington, Delaware. He was educated as an aeronautical engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (BS 1966) and the California Institute of Technology (PhD 1970). After spending the early part of his career with several Southern California aerospace companies, in 1973, he founded DCW Industries, Inc., for which he is currently the President. He has taught several aerospace and mechanical engineering courses at both USC and UCLA.

In the early 1990s, Dr. Wilcox shifted the focus of his corporation from defense contracting to book publishing. Building on an international reputation based on numerous scientific-journal publications, he has written and published an undergraduate dynamics text entitled Dynamics (2011), two undergraduate fluid-mechanics texts entitled Basic Fluid Mechanics (1997, 2000, 2007, 2010, 2012) and Elements of Fluid Mechanics (2005). He has also written two graduate-level texts entitled Turbulence Modeling for CFD (1993, 1998, 2006) and Perturbation Methods in the Computer Age (1995). These books are currently in use at universities throughout the world.

Dr. Wilcox has also written three nontechnical books, the most recent of which is a partial autobiography entitled An Improbable Life (2007). The other two books are a fictional novel about a political compaign, . . . And the Donkey They Rode in On (2001), and collection of essays about politics entitled Cliches of Liberalism (1999).
