Project Associate

Space Dynamics Laboratory
August 2021 - July 2022

I primarily worked on the software and simulation aspects of a 5-dof satellite simulator.


Google Summer of Code developer

May 2018 - August 2018

In this position I worked on developing an orbit determination software. First we determine a good estimate of a satellite orbit using data from multiple ground stations. Next, we predict the future location and velocity of the satellite. I also worked on a good GUI to visualize the results.
