Life Updates

So, I am now an official rocket scientist. A great many things have happened over the past month.

1. I graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology with a PhD in aerospace engineering. My thesis was on certain features of channel wall erosion in Hall Effect Thrusters.

2. I moved to Cleveland OH from Atlanta GA. I survived. This time all of my furniture survived the trip.

3. I am now renting an awesome house in Parma Heights.

4. I have started work as an “Aerospace Technologist” at NASA Glenn Research center. I will be working on the European Service Module portion of the Orion project.

 

Below is a photo of my swearing-in ceremony.

I now have a lot of time in the evenings though, and on weekends. I’ll have to get into the habit of seriously pursuing my hobbies again.
