What I use Linkedin for:
On Linkedin, I look for inspiration from people. There are so many ideas, quotes, and projects to find here – all this inspiration is what I look for, in the aerospace industry and beyond.

Who am I:
In no particular order – I am a feminist, communicator, PhD student, debate coach, aerospace engineer, daughter, sister, scientist, advocate for gender equality, diversity and human rights, dancer… In space, I am above all passionate about human spaceflight and human exploration of Mars.
What I do:
I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Protective Use of Regolith for Planetary and Lunar Exploration or PURPLE in short. This Ph.D. is supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), TRAD Tests & Radiations, and ISAE-SUPAERO under the ESA OSIP collaboration platform. Besides looking for ways to use regolith in habitat construction for astronaut protection, I train young engineers and scientists in effective communication and coach debating. Between that and walking my dog, I volunteer for Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) where among other brilliant volunteers, I work towards embracing diversity and paving the way for gender equality. In 2021, we established a new Project Group on Diversity and Gender Equality at SGAC. Shout out to the team of Giants from Our Giant Leap!

Yulia’s Favorite Post
It is a post about my TEDx talk To Mars together: 5 reasons to explore the red planet. I hope it generates discussion and inspiration. Let’s go to Mars for science, life, Earth, inspiration, and (new) intercultural efforts!
