I am a graduate student in Stanford University, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and a Member of Technical Staff at DSO National Laboratories, Singapore. My undergraduate education was in Electrical Engineering in the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). My research interest is in the guidance, navigation, control and autonomy of distributed space systems, such as formations and swarm satellites. This research field presents an exciting new frontier that could unlock novel space mission ideas and exploit new space flight concepts that allow us to glean new insights about our planet, our solar system, and the universe.

In my career, I was a space mission designer and analyst in DSO National Laboratories solving orbit design and optimisation problems. I also designed the relative satellite navigation algorithms for Singapore's first formation flying mission using differential GNSS techniques. I am proficient in both procedural and object oriented programming languages (Python, MATLAB, Julia, C++). I am also well versed in using and automating AGI's Satellite Tool Kit (STK). I build and share open-source tools using Python for astrodynamics analysis on my GitHub.

I am privileged to have been an SUTD Zhejiang University Asian Leadership Program Scholar, a DSO SOAR Scholar, a DSO Postgraduate Scholar, and a Tan Kah Kee Foundation Scholar. I am elated to have also won a Merit Award in the Singapore Space Challenge 2018, and won the team first prize in the Caltech Space Challenge 2022. I aspire to contribute significantly to multi-agent space flight research, as well as to be a channel for young minds to find inspiration in space science and engineering. To do this, together with a team of friends, we build and maintain Open Space Singapore - a vibrant student-friendly space technology interest group in Singapore ( where we advocate for the free exchange of knowledge, promote open discourse and celebrate mind share, for the gainful benefit of others.

I also enjoy photography, painting, sketching, hiking and other outdoor activities.
