Michael Zero obtained a BS in mechanical engineering with a focus in aerospace engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. After graduating, he worked in the Space Biosciences Division at NASA Ames Research Center developing ISS payloads. Currently, Michael is a graduate student working with Dr. David Klaus and Dr. Christine Fanchiang investigating whether physiological data from non-invasive wearable sensors can be used as proxies for human performance to evaluate space habitat design and operational attributes.
