    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
     
    I am a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society, The Space Generation Advisory Council and The Mars Society. I have assisted with CAPCOM duties for the Mars Society’s MDRS station. 
     
    I am currently science and engineering advisor for a 3D video game called “Lacuna Passage”, which is set on Mars, and utilizes actual map data from Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter as its in-game textures. The game was successfully funded on the Kickstarter website, and is expected for release in December 2014.
     
    My MSc thesis involved the design and simulation of a 3D printed CubeSat structure. It was designed to withstand a +20g launch load, and since the project completion, I have learned that ESA have flight certified my chosen material. The CubeSat design was 50% lighter than commercial aluminium structures, and capable of surviving the same loads without excessive deformation. Additionally, it was 75% less expensive than existing commercial solutions. 
     
    The research that I conducted for Made In Space has resulted in several developments which are now being tested in their lab at NASA Ames Research Center. If they are successful they will be deployed to the International Space Station in 2014 at the earliest.
