Self Introduction

I’m a third year Mechanical Engineering with Aerospace student at the University of Southampton. Following my strong interest in everything space related, I decided to join the Southampton University Spaceflight Society (SUSF) in my second year at University and to get involved in their projects. Besides helping in the Mars Micro-greenhouse project, I am working on the design of payload for a high altitude balloon. Being a part of this society has definitely changed my University experience as I had a chance to meet people from different backgrounds and to learn more about space, plus to take on projects which may have an influence in future work opportunities.


I always try to closely observe space launches and astronauts at the ISS as much as Uni work allows me to. Besides space, I have many other interests including nutrition, cycling and figure skating.
