As an aerospace engineer with long-standing passions for human space flight and robotics, the importance of keeping the human in mind from earliest conception of new projects is paramount. I recently co-founded and serve as the Chief Operating Officer at Aurelia Institute, a space non-profit dedicated to space architecture research & development, space education & outreach, and space policy. I received a bachelors in Aerospace Engineering with Information Technology from MIT, a Masters in Space Studies with Human Space Flight from the International Space University, and a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Tokyo. Industry experience includes working as an aerospace engineer at NASA Goddard on robotic satellite servicing and as a space systems engineer and group leader at Draper, where my favorite project was leading Draper's Displays & Controls subsystem team for one of the entrants to the NASA Artemis Human Landing System competition.
