My research interests comprise of the advancement of pulsed plasma thrusters into a high specific thrust regime for extending the scientific capabilities of both CubeSats and upper atmospheric fliers. Further, I'm interested in optical emission spectroscopy by arc ablation with applications as an space science payload.
