My research lies at the intersections of orbital mechanics and hypersonic flight mechanics with a focus on expanding the space mission design envelop using novel techniques and enabling next-generation exploration architectures. My work spans a variety of mission designs for planetary explorations, such as orbiter co-delivery concepts for entry vehicles, sample returns from the giant planets, and multi-probe for outer planets exploration. As a proud WPI alumni, I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering here and completed my Ph.D. degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University in 2019. Prior to joining WPI in 2023, I worked as an Assistant Professor in the College of Aeronautics and Engineering at Kent State University, conducting research and teaching courses in Aerospace Engineering.
