    RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

    _________________________________________________________________________________
    Master’s Research Project, University College London  - (71%)                    Sept 2015 - July 2016

    Overview:  My Master’s research project, Exploring Descent Camera Designs for Planetary Penetrators, involved investigating the design requirements for a descent camera for a penetrator mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa.

    Formulated descent camera designs using ESA’s CLEO/P Concept, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter WAC, NASA’s Europa Mission EIS and ESA’s JUICE mission JANUS instrument. Developed Matlab simulations of the descent camera’s operation during its descent stage and produced 3D digital terrain models of Europa’s surface. 

    Results: 

    Determined a set of times during the descent camera’s operation when its spatial resolution exceeds the best resolution of JANUS (10 m/pixel) and the EIS’s NAC (0.5 m/pixel).  Provided input to the Akon Europa penetrator mission proposal to ESA. Produced an interim and final report and presented my project at the MSSL. 

    Bachelor’s Research Project, The University of Warwick - (65%)                   Oct 2014 - June 2015

    Overview: My Bachelor’s research project, Equal Depth Eclipsing Binary Stars, used data collected by NASA's Kepler Space Telescope to investigate the equal depth criteria. 

    Methods & Results:

    Developed Python scripts to determine and model the orbital periods and eclipse depths of 94 eclipsing binary stars using Kepler FITS files from the Kepler Eclipsing Binary Catalog (KEBC). Identified and calculated the transit times of 7 circumbinary exoplanets in the KEBC.
