    ·       As part of the team that was selected by ESA to participate in the REXUS program (Rocket Experiments for University Students), I was in charge of the hardware and software design of the payload boards of this experiment. The goal of GGES was to test a MEMS attitude determination sensor. The payload boards are responsible for MEMS sensor and inertial data collection. This was the topic of my Master thesis (which took place from February 2011 to July 2011).

    ·       Published in the conference proceedings for 21st ESA Symposium on European Rocket and Balloon Programs, Thun, Switzerland, June 9-13, 2013 (https://infoscience.epfl.ch/record/187717)
