What I use Linkedin for:

I find Linkedin is a really great way to keep up with news and achievements of peers from my networks and connections from all around the world.

The space sector is a small world, and through organisations like SGAC and IAF, we form global friendships and working relationships.

We are all working towards our shared passion in space, and it is uplifting to celebrate each other’s achievements, because we are all in a sense working towards a betterment of our field.

Space Medicine


Who am I:

My passion is in developing the technology needed to surmount the challenges to human health in space, to revolutionize human spaceflight, and to enable human life beyond Earth.

There are so much technology and data that can transform human health and delivery of healthcare, on Earth and beyond.

As a practicing physician, engineer, and clinical informaticist, I aim to use technology, data and automation to improve the care we deliver to our patients, and eventually to our astronauts.

What I do:

I am a practicing physician and Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and the New York Presbyterian Hospital.

My day to day job is about providing the best possible care to my patients. I also collaborate with colleagues across the world on various space medicine research initiatives.

I am also the Co-Chair of the Space Generation Advisory Council, a volunteer-based, global non-governmental, non-profit organisation and network which aims to represent university students and young space professionals age 18-35 to the United Nations, space agencies, industry and academic.

Our network of members and alumni has grown to more than 16,500 members representing more than 165 countries across the world.

Together with our Chair, Harriet Brettle, we lead the organisation in delivering our flagship global events, the Space Generation Congress, Space Generation Fusion Forum, and SGx, providing more than 100 scholarships to enable member’s participation at these events, supporting 11 project groups, delivering a youth-run space policy and advocacy platform, and providing many professional development opportunities.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

My “space career” is pretty non-traditional. You might be as curious as I am about what I will get up to next. And Space is a great community. You never know who you will collaborate with next.


Who I Follow on LinkedIn

I follow a lot of my peers. One thing I have learned is that everyone has their struggles and uncertainties, but these things are not often shared. This makes their successes all the more worth celebrating. It gives me inspiration and motivation to “keep going”. Some of my most inspiring colleagues include:

I was lucky enough to be leading SGAC when we received this generous donation from Blue Origin. The gift was truly transformative for us as an organisation and I wanted to recognise the many past leaders and volunteers who poured countless voluntary hours into SGAC that made this possible.

Pineapple EMPIRE’s mission is to accelerate the world to the New Space Economy.
