What do you love about Purdue Space Day?
It's the one day a year where people don't look at me like I'm crazy for running around shouting about spaceflight!

Favorite Class/Professor?
I really enjoyed Professor Heister's Hypersonic Propulsion class (AAE 537) and Professor Poggie's Computational Fluid Dynamics class (AAE 512). 

What do you hope to be doing in 10 years?
Ideally, I'd like to be an astronaut, but I'll be delighted as long as I'm working on cool projects in the world of hypersonic flight.

What do you think your favorite memory of Purdue will be?
Purdue Space Day is actually pretty high on the list - space, cute kids, and an astronaut - what's not to love? If not, PSD, perhaps attending Aviation Week's Laureate Awards as one of the "20 Twenties".

Hidden Talent? 
Ph.D. student by day; pastry chef by night. Eclairs, croissants, macarons, cakes - you name it, I'll make it....or at least try to!
