Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a first year Masters student in the Aero/Astro department. My interests are primarily in the dynamics and control of spacecraft (specifically satellites). I'm currently working part-time for OneWeb, which is a start-up that is using a mega-constellation of hundreds of satellites to provide global internet. I'm very passionate about the commercial space industry having served as programming chair for a NewSpace conference, member-at-Large of the largest student space organization in the nation (SEDS-USA) and having been president of the local SEDS (Students for the Exploration and Development of Space) chapter at Georgia Tech during my undergraduate studies. I also was a recipient of the first annual Matthew Isakowitz Commercial Space Fellowship.
