Research Summary:

My work is focused in the experimental area of the SPL. My main field of research is Time of Flight (TOF) system control and data acquisition, on how to standardize the software to obtain test data and to post-process it. Towards this goal, I work with the TOF system to characterize the thrusters developed in the lab with different ionic liquids. The purpose is to learn the optimal way of getting the data and obtaining results from the tests. I am also the unofficial SPL media coordinator and photographer for events.
