Inspired and passionate PhD candidate in space instrument development and qualification, striving towards multi-disciplinary research and
innovation in space science and technology for planetary exploration. Let's begin with Moon and Mars.
Vision: Innovating technological solutions for space exploration missions through state-of-the-art research and contribute to betterment of human life for common causes.
Background: Aerospace Engineering.
Direction: Working with applied engineering in planetary science applications relevant for space exploration.
Research focus: Space technology design and development, space instrumentation, calibration, validation and qualification, planetary atmospheres, surfaces and sub-surfaces, in-situ resource utilization (ISRU), habitability, astrobiology, space exploration.
Experience: Mechanical (CAD, structural, thermal and flow analysis) and electronics (breadboard and PCB) design, embedded (microcontroller and FPGA) and scientific programming (data logging and data analysis), developing concepts to instrument prototypes (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, 3D printing), sensors (temperature, pressure, relative humidity, IR thermopile, gas monitoring, peltier element, electrical conductivity, pH, redox probes) and instrument calibration modelling and validation tests (thermal vacuum chamber, Mars simulation chamber, blackbody source, solar simulator) in clean room and field site environment.
