I am a keen enthusiast of helping humanity in its endeavours, to improve the condition of individuals and quality of life on Earth today, and to set the path to the stars for tomorrow. I believe we can expand our knowledge and curiosity to Space, and what we learn beyond our atmosphere can be applied to better manage climate change and its effects on our world today, and vice-versa.
I am open to projects that involve built and civil architectures and human life-support systems, and their applications both on Earth and in Space.
