I am a student at UC Berkeley's Engineering Physics and am currently exploring space and autonomous systems, but previously I was the laboratory experiments lead at the Deepspace Lab with Professor Philip Lubin. I have spent the past 4 years exploring many aspects of space. I also love hosting speaker series and learning from life stories. Now at UC Berkeley I try to bridge engineering and entrepreneurship as well. Currently, I am working on Space Technologies at Cal, Berkeley Entrepreneurs Association, and Newton Lecture Series. Also cofounder at Directed Energy.
This is an overview of my research. I designed, built, and led all experiments for this research. My paper is below.
Through STAC, we designed and built a microgravity experiment with multiple research projects inside. Launching via Blue Origin.
This is an overview diagram of work that came out of our company, Directed Energy LLC. We proposed a laser system on the moon for ISRU manufacturing and laser ablation launch.
Designed and prototyped a Cubesat deployer that is capable of deploying smaller PCBSats.
I enjoy working with my hands on hardware projects, thinking about physics, and applying economic skills to engineering.
Explination of the work that I undertook at UCSB while studying Laser Ablation of Asteroids.
Walk-through of how I have learned to fail through a startup. Advice on how to move forward.
A talk while at the PDC in Frascati Italy with 200+ attendees. Presented my laser ablation experimental results as they have vast implications for planetary defense.
