I first got involved with space activities as a student participant of the Pehuensat R&D National Project in 1999. My responsibility was to co-ordinate a student team to study low-altitude satellites. The Pehuensat-1 Satellite, developed by the Comahue University jointly with the Argentine Association for Space Technology (AATE) was launched January 10th, 2007 along with ISRO's PSLV C-7 Rocket from Sriharikota - India, being the first payload from an Argentine University to fly in a launch vehicle.
During 1999 an international student project called Starshine was created, organized by the Rocky Mountains NASA Space Grant Consortium and Dr. Gilbert Moore, at the University of Utah. Its main objective was to determine the variation of atmospheric density during a certain period of time based on orbital parameters of satellites in low altitude. Students from all over the world were invited to participate in the measurement of the orbital data, as well as to polish and grind the covering mirrors of three spherical satellites (Starshine I, II and III). The development of the objectives was a success and I had the opportunity to write and present several papers in different space congresses in Argentina. This project allowed me to work with students from different Universities of Argentina and the rest of the world. Scientists in charge of different phases spent five years working on this project, and not only did they give the students their best support, but they also encouraged them to work as a single unit chasing the same goal: The evolution of knowledge based on scientific teamwork and human relations.
In 2000 I volunteered to work in Project PADE (Argentinean Package of Experiments). This project consisted of seven microgravity experiments designed and built by different Institutions in Argentina, such as Comahue University. The PADE flew on board of Space Shuttle Endeavour in mission STS-108 in December 2001 and was the First Latin American Get Away Special Canister to fly into Space. It was managed and supported by the Argentine Association for Space Technology (AATE).
In 2004 I was selected as a delegate by the Space Generation Congress Delegates Committee (SGCD) from the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) in support of the United Nations Program on Space Applications to attend the 'Explorers Wanted' Space Generation Congress in Vancouver, Canada. I joined two hundred other highly motivated students from all over the world to develop ideas for the future exploration of space. As part of an international team, we were able to integrate the different status of several National Space Programs and analyze any possibility of future international cooperation. During SGC I also presented two papers at the International Astronautical Congress IAC- 2004: the first one on drop vibration in microgravity and the second one on stratospherical balloons and free-falling capsules.
In 2005 I was awarded with an internship at the Department of Microgravity of the School of Engineering at Comahue University as an assistant for a regional Project on “Wind Energy and reception of Satellite Images”. I also worked on a student project related to stratospherical balloons and aerodynamic deceleration (Parachute Design) in the Microgravity Laboratory of the same University.
That same year, I obtained the Licence of Flight Operations Officer (Aircraft Dispatcher), awarded by the Aviation Training Center C.E.F.A. in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina.
In 2006 I began to work as an Undergraduate Student Assistant at the School of Engineering, mostly in the area of Aerodynamics and Thermodynamics.
In 2009 I obtained a BS in Physics with a minor in Education and Mechanical Engineering. The topic of my final research project was: “Educational Strategies in Microgravity”, presenting an experiment on fluids conducted in the free-fall Tower of Comahue University. That same year I was awarded a scholarship by the Space Studies Department of the University of North Dakota (UND) to pursue the MSc in Space Studies.
During my time at UND, I initially worked as a Graduate Student Assistant for the course: “SpSt 200: Introduction to Space Studies, and then I worked as a Research Assistant at UND Space Suit Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Pablo de León until the end of the program. I became part of a research project called “NASA EPSCOR 2009: Integrated Strategies for the Human Exploration of the Moon and Mars”, whose main objective is to design, build and integrate an inflatable lunar habitat, two planetary prototypes and two electric rovers for a four- member crew to simulate planetary operations during a six-month mission period. The integrated system, together with the NDX-2 planetary prototype, was first tested in October 2013 in a 10-day mission simulation. In 2010 I received the “Outstanding Graduate Student” award by the UND Department of Space Studies. In 2011 I graduated from the MSc Program and my thesis presented a microbiological analysis (Biocontamination of Latex vs. Neoprene as candidate materials for the Pressure Containing Bladder) and a thermodynamic study (Heat Removal Capacity of the NDX-1 Liquid Cooling Garment) of two different components of the NDX-1 planetary prototype. In 2012 I started working at Comahue University as a Professor in different courses from Bachelor Degrees such as Engineering and Biology. In 2013 I was awarded with a scholarship to pursue a PhD in Biomedical Sciences at the UCA University to do research on the alteration of circadian rhythm and the psychophysiological alterations of crews during long term planetary simulations as a first step in the study of crew performance during long term space missions such as to planet Mars.
I would like to expand my professional horizons by working in administration or logistics related to Support System activities that contribute to the development of the Aerospace Industry. I enjoy learning, doing research, teamwork, leadership, active roles, social interaction, coordination with other departments and developing new logistical strategies in favour of cost effective procedures, better services or a more innovative technical concept.
