I am a sophomore majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a strong interest in aerospace. My love of all things rockets began during my freshman year of high school when I was exposed to our school’s rocketry team. After joining, I dove headfirst into a variety of projects involving mixing propellant, experimenting with fin geometries, and constructing various rockets. My passion was further fueled by the exciting innovations and accomplishments that have been occurring in the aerospace industry. This passion culminated in a capstone project in which I constructed a high-power Mach 2 rocket. I hope to continue to develop my skills by learning from all the talented people who are a part of VADL.
