    •    “Integrated Applications for Sustainable use of Coastal Regions”. Paper submitted to the International

    Astronautical Congress on behalf of SSP13 Team Project final report. Addressed problems related to water pollution along the Kenyan coast. Solutions included the use of sensor buoys, mobile phone communications, radio broadcasts, etc. Four mobile applications were proposed related to potential fishing zones, oil spills, water pollution and collection of geo-tagged images and videos.

    •    “Planets Transiting Nearby Red Dwarfs”. Investigated the possibility of detecting a planet transiting an

    M (red) dwarf star, using an 8” backyard telescope setup. Small rocky planets are viewed as more likely to exist around these small, less luminous, long-lived stars.

    •    “Exoplanet Science with S.O.F.I.A.- The Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy”. Internship project, completed at NASA Ames Research Center. Involved a detailed literature review and suggested future exoplanetary research projects in infrared wavelengths.

    •    “The Feasibility of Particle Beam Matter Transfer: From the Moon to Earth & Other Applications”. Master’s individual research project, completed at ISU. Investigated the hypothetical re-use of hall-effect thrusters on the lunar surface, in order to propel in-situ derived oxygen to lunar or Earth orbit.

    •    “Full Moon: Oxygen and Hydrogen Storage and Distribution on the Lunar Surface”. Master’s team research project, completed at ISU. Contributed to the oxygen and hydrogen storage team with emphasis on future critical technologies for ISRU and propellant storage on the lunar surface.

    •    “Luna Gaia: A Closed Loop Habitat on the Lunar Surface”. Summer session team project, completed at ISU. Contributed to the location and power research teams, analyzing both short term (technologically feasible) and long term (utilizing future technologies) power supply and collection alternatives.
