Mission Design Center (MDC) - Worked on a project called the ‘NEOShield: A Global Approach to Near-Earth Object Impact Threat Mitigation’ funded by the European Union (http://www.neoshield.net). As a part of my internship, I did a feasibility assessment to include a Gravity Tractor capability within a Kinetic Impactor mission design, with particular attention on the concept of operations, asteroid selection criteria and propulsion system selection for the combined mission design. This experience enhanced my ability to work effectively with people at all levels in an organisation and manage time efficiently.

“Commercial Suborbital Vehicle Microgravity Research Experiment Payload Standards”- Individual Project at ISU (2014)
Conducted a survey on what is planned and what already exists in terms of research experiment accommodations (power, size, mass, human operated, cost, cabin configuration, others) on Virgin Galactic, XCOR and Masten’s commercial suborbital vehicles. The results are compiled and analyzed to determine if what is being offered is sufficient or if there might need to be other accommodations designed into these flight vehicles to better accommodate microgravity experiments. An assessment of whether standard features are being offered is also presented along with recommendations for standardization.
Published research paper at the 67th International Astronautical Congress. Paper identification No. is “IAC-16,A2,3,8,x33338”.
“Sustainability, Satellites, and Ground-Based Observatories” (2013)
Taking up proposals for the countries in the Southern Hemisphere, examining the value of filling in the gaps in the networks of magnetic observatories for space weather and optical debris observatories by installing both additional magnetic observatories and small debris monitoring telescopes. Also exploring these observatories as they could spur space activity and assist in the development of science, math, and engineering education in the Global South.
