I am currently a PhD student at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, supervised by Robert E. Zee in the Space Flight Laboratory and Georgia Fotopoulos at the University of Texas at Dallas. My work involves multistatic interferometric synthetic aperture radar payload design for a constellation of cooperative formation-flying microsatellites. I have also worked on science mission analysis for the Lunette Lunar Gravity Mapping Payload, and was the team coordinator with the European Student Moon Orbiter during Phase A studies.

In 2010 I spent three months as a visiting scholar at the German Aerospace Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, and attended the 22nd Annual Planetary Science Summer School at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

I graduated from MIT with an S.B. in Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2002, and received my M.A.Sc. from the University of Toronto in 2008.
