As a science officer at TeamIndus, I selected landing sites for their Moon missions, identified science objectives and converted them to engineering requirements.

🌗
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.

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

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