John A. Doe

Aerospace/Astronautical Engineer


I enjoy the many facets of spacecraft system engineering and have gained experience with architecture design, modeling, analysis, and evaluation. I have had the opportunity to work on CubeSats and SmallSats, from the concept phase, to the architecture and design, progressing to an engineered prototype, and then the physical flight system. I find these CubeSat and SmallSat related projects exciting as these small systems are extremely capable, as the result of technologic advancements. During my free time, I have been working on developing an open source CubeSat package; it’s my way to give back to the space community.


I have a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and am currently working towards my Masters in Astronautical Engineering. During my undergraduate years, I participated in the MyState Space Grant Program for 3.5 years, developing and working on various space-related projects.
