I am currently a doctoral student in the Human Factors program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). My research focuses on resilience engineering and team adaptation in extreme environments. I am particularly interested in the technological and human factors challenges of exploration space missions to destinations like Mars. This past year, I was the student lead for ERAU on a project for the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) program. This experience made me grow as a person and gave me valuable skills I will use in my academic and professional career. I hope to continue this endeavor as well as give others the opportunity to be involved in groundbreaking research.
