What was the most valuable thing you learned by being a member of the team?
I learned that the moral of the team is more important then the technical challenges ahead. Happy people find solutions to problems and inspire everyone around them.
What impact did being a member of the Roaring Riptide have on your life?
Have you worked for any companies or labs either full-time or for an internship? If so, which ones?
What are some projects that you’ve worked on since graduating high school?
While Co-Oping with Ascend, I completely designed and built a digital monitoring and control system for a chemistry research laboratory. Here at NASA, I am working on a thermal balance test for a new type of large scale, high power solar array. These extra large solar arrays will provide enough power to make electric propulsion and ion drive a realistic option.
