Research Projects

Fall 2022 - Current

For my senior thesis, I am working on a space solar power concentrator satellite design for powering lunar habitats.

Summer 2021 - Spring 2022

As a SURF Fellow, I performed numerical simulations on the dynamic properties of helical-type acoustic metamaterials with experimental validation.

I explored the role that molecular shape (i.e. the aspect ratio) takes on the binary diffusion of monoatomic, diatomic, and triatomic molecules through air and other gases.

For the 2022 NASA BIG Idea Challenge, we designed, built, and tested a robotic system with novel alternative rover locomotion modalities for use in extreme lunar terrain applications.

Fall 2020 - Fall 2021

For the 2021 NASA BIG Idea Challenge, we designed and implemented a modular lunar dust mitigation panel using EDS technology. Best Product Development Award.
