Who am I:

My life’s purpose is to keep exploring and going beyond my limits. This is by following my passion with a career in space, setting up my own company in space analogues, as challenging myself and my environment in every way possible. I value true connections, open mindness, and Earth itself.

What I do:

I am the co-founder of ICEE.Space, which is an international space test, research, and development start-up for future human space exploration. With the analog mission CHILL-ICE, we provide commercial analog astronaut training and experiences as testbeds for upcoming Lunar research and systems in extreme environments on Earth.
Furthermore, I work at CGI Space as a Galileo Operational Systems Engineer and simultaneously do the Master of Space Studies at the International Space University.
In the meantime, I am conducting a research about using Augmented Reality Heads-in displays inside future lunar spacesuit helmets. A demo, will be tested during the CHILL-ICE analog mission in Iceland this august (2022).

For 2 months a group of international, interdisciplinary and intercultural professionals came together in Strasbourg. There we conducted a research towards Solutions for Construction of a Lunar Base: A proposal to Use the SpaceX Starship as a Permanent Habitat. The paper focuses on how to develop a realistic habitat within the next decade using the 6 disciplines: Engineering, Science, Humanities, Policy & Law, Management & business, Applications.
We were allowed to present the research in Dubai at the IAC ’21 and a peer-reviewed paper is on the way.
