Stable Isotope Lab
Undergraduate Researcher                                                                                                                                                   (04/2015-present) • Designed and built a vacuum reaction line to fluorinate water, which was extracted from an artificial Mars sample that
participated in a photolysis experiment with water and oxygen, to measure triple oxygen isotope.
• Working towards determining the rate of isotopic exchange between the water, oxygen and the artificial Mars sample using the designed line.

Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (	(03/2015-present) Engine Team 
•Vulcan 1 Rocket – Currently working on "Vulcan 1" Rocket project that will use a 3-D printed engine and liquid propellant to reach an altitude of 10,000 feet for the NSRA competition in June 2015. The organization has received attention on NBC News, Yahoo News,, and the Discovery Channel. SEDS@UCSD won best design in DIY Rockets’ 3D Rocket Challenge, 1st place in NewSpace Competition, and Best Technical Project at the 2013 SpaceVision Conference
•Designing the next 3D printed injector plate that will go on the combustion chamber.

SEDS “MoonShot Alpha” Project	(03/2015-present) Engine Team 
•Working towards designing, building and landing a lunar lander on the Moon.
•Building a CubeSat, which will be our communications relay, and it will help us with NASA’s $3 million dollar competition.
•Utilizes SolidWorks to design the Cubesat engine based on NASA's specific guidelines. This engine would provide high thrust because of its shorter transition periods between lunar orbits. 
•Attempting to prove that the complex geometrical passages in the injector plate that 3D printing provides will allow us to print a more efficient engine.

“Solar PV System Performance in Nepal” Research Project	(01/2015- present) Undergraduate Researcher
