Hello! I'm a graduate student at Purdue University in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics studying astrodynamics in Prof. Kathleen Howell's Multi-Body Dynamics Research Group.

I recently defended my Master's research project, where I demonstrated how resonant orbits in the circular restricted three-body problem can enable space infrastructure applications, such as on-orbit refueling and maintenance. This investigation was funded, in part, thanks to grant #303482 by the Fonds de Recherche du Québec - Nature et Technologies. My thesis is titled There and Back Again: Generating Repeating Transfers Using Resonant Structures.

I had the pleasure of chatting about my research with Jeremy Ullman on the Abstract: The future of science podcast. Check out the episode here.

Previously, I received my B.Eng in Aerospace Engineering from Concordia University, specializing in Aerodynamics and Propulsion. During the Summer of 2018 at Concordia I held a Concordia Undergraduate Student Research Award in Prof. Susan Liscouët Hanke's Aircraft Systems Lab where I created a parametric thermal model of an aircraft cabin to demonstrate a potential use-case of a solar-powered air conditioning system. My undergraduate honours research project under the supervision of Prof. Brian Vermeire investigated the onset of vortex shedding on a heated thin wire using computational fluid dynamics.

I am currently funded through a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Postgraduate Doctoral scholarship and a Fonds de Recherche du Québec -- Nature et Technologies Doctoral scholarship. Their support is greatly appreciated.
