Developing safe and robust learning-based high-level controller for Free Flyer space robotics testbed platform. Implementing mixed-integer and sampling-based MPC-based low-level controller for efficient control of binary thruster-actuated system.
Co-Program Director; Aero/Composites
2019 - 2023
Designed the aerodynamic shell for a road-legal solar-powered vehicle and validated it through high-fidelity CFD simulations to minimize drag. Worked with suppliers to source composite materials and fabricated the monocoque carbon fiber composite shell/chassis with prepreg and wet layup techniques.
As program director, oversaw operations, logistics, funding, sponsor/supplier partnerships, and university relations for the entire 70+ member team on our build cycle for our 10th-generation road-legal solar powered vehicle.
