Space Research

As a science officer at TeamIndus, I selected landing sites for their Moon missions, identified science objectives, and converted them to engineering requirements. Here are two notable works I was actively involved in while I was there.

๐ŸŒ— Co-developed a framework with veteran scientist Dr. Jim Head and peers for maximizing science in lunar landing missions. Abstract and poster, presented at LPSC 2019.

๐ŸŽ“ Part of the TeamIndus group collaborating with Brown University on a science-optimized rover traverse in a Moon landing mission. Paper published on NewSpace.

I also have some research experience in Astrophysics, specifically in analyzing X-rays from cosmic objects as measured by Astrosat, Indiaโ€™s first space telescope.
