Here are some of my experiences as part of the Structural Engineering Division's Materials and Processing Branch, at the Johnson Space Center, in backwards chronological order.
As part of the Materials and Processing Branch's Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) team, I performed ultrasonic testing, metallography studies, computed tomography (CT) reconstruction and analysis, infrared (IR) thermography, and borescope inspection. I supported NASA's Commercial Crew program and NASA's Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle.
Mentors: Ajay Koshti and David Stanley
In the Fall 2016, I worked on three main projects. The first was the Morpheus Lander spacecraft pressure system.
Mentor: Nathanael Greene
My next two projects where developing the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, a NASA spacecraft capable of supporting astronauts for long-duration deep-space missions. In my second project, I worked on a long-term creep test of Orion's acrylic window material together with the Orion window subsystem manager Lynda Estes.
In the third project, I supported the mechanical testing of composites for Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle.
Mentor: Jeremy Jacobs
