I am a third year PhD student in Aerospace Engineering and I work on spacecraft astrodynamics for imaging missions in Dmitry Savransky’s research group. I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela but grew up in Miami, FL where I did my undergrad at the University of Miami. During the 3 weeks a year when my ankles aren’t sprained, I like to rock climb, windsurf, snowboard, and pretend I play soccer.

I’m a third-year Ph.D. student in Aerospace Engineering, and am in Prof. Mark Campbell’s research group. My research focus is on robotic perception i.e. how to make robots not drive into walls. I’m originally from New York City, and did my undergrad at Cornell in computer science. I enjoy martial arts, snowboarding, and going on hikes around Ithaca.

I’m a third year working under Professor Bewley on high-speed, subsonic compressible turbulent flows. In my spare time, I watch, play and breathe “fútbol” (big Real Madrid fan!) and play the piano.

 I am a third year PhD student in Aerospace Engineering, and I work on relativistic navigation in Mason Peck’s research group. I am from Turkey, that’s also where I did my undergrad(s). I like space stuff, blueberry muffins, David Lynch, and dancing salsa. I also tend to talk a lot if you are not a very talkative person so apologies in advance.
