    CV

    SUMMARY 

    Developing and operating cryogenic rocket motors in academia, I am determined to join the private space sector as a young professional. Conducting regular motor tests on-console amongst two sounding rocket launches, I value effective communication as part of a high work ethic, essential for mission assurance and human safety. To me a hands-on attitude does not contradict sophisticated problem solving. Eager to learn and grateful for challenges, I am convinced I can play a vital role in your engineering team. Amazing people merging into a powerful team is what inspires me most.
