My current research is focused on the use of two-phase heat transfer devices as the main thermal control system for spacecraft payloads. The work done as part of my thesis involves the mathematical modeling and experimentation of Loop Heat Pipes with radiators located on the East – West faces of Geostationary Telecommunication Satellites. We seek to understand the effects of two-way pressure regulating valves on the behavior of such thermal control systems which have not yet been extensively researched or understood. Read More

During my undergraduate degree, I chose to pursue the ‘Space Systems Design’ stream which focuses on aspects pertaining to the specification and design of various spacecraft subsystems. Some of the more relevant courses include:

Orbital Mechanics
Spacecraft Design
Space Mission Design
Spacecraft Dynamics and Control
Heat Transfer for Aerospace Applications
Transatmospheric and Spacecraft Propulsion
Communication Links

Furthermore, I was a core member of the final year Satellite Design Project in which we developed the preliminary design of a 3-Unit CubeSat for the detection of wild forest fires. During this project, I assumed the role of lead systems integrator, in addition to designing/ analyzing the custom built satellite structure. This required a sound working knowledge of design aspects of every subsystem and great attention to detail so as to ensure compatibility of various interfacing components. This project also provided me with the opportunity to exercise my leadership and teamwork skills to a much larger and more professional manner.
