Research Associate

May 2018 to August 2018 (Summer Internship)

NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (Huntsville, Alabama) I am a chemical engineering student at the University of South Alabama and I will be graduating in May 2019. This past summer (2018) I was a research associate at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center located in Huntsville, Alabama. During this opportunity, I developed skills in solid rocket motor design, project management, Microsoft Office, professional presentations, and understanding industry processes. I was privileged to get to work closely and learn from Timothy Kibbey (Jacobs employee), Pat Lampton (NASA employee), and collaborate weekly with UP Aerospace (customer).

During my time as a Research Associate at Marshall Space Flight Center, my team was tasked with designing, characterizing, and optimizing the third stage composite solid rocket motor for the Spyder rocket being designed by NASA and UP Aerospace Inc. I was the lead on the trajectory optimization, case dimensions, insulation thickness, and grain geometry. While being the lead for the tasks listed above I learned how to use NASA's trajectory analysis tool (POST) and NASA's Solid Propellant Performance program (SPP). I really enjoyed learning to use these industry tools and worked closely with NASA and Jacobs employees to get the best understanding of the programs. These two programs had a difficult learning curve because they are written in Fortran which my school does not teach anymore, but I found that sometimes you just have to keep trying and making small mistakes is okay because there will be someone you can ask for help. This is something that college doesn’t teach you because in class there is always a right answer but when it comes to real world expericences there may be many correct ways but there is normally one more correct and efficient. I learned about project planning and management while working with a group of three other research associates and three NASA professionals. One of my project management roles on this team was to help us stay on task and prioritize the work in chronological order for critical path items while ensuring predecessor tasks were understood and completed. This was challenging due to the short turnaround time required in order to understand the parameters and then to produce the third stage motor design in a short 10 weeks.

In order to maintain consistency amongst our team members for the documentation and presentations, I led the team by creating templates for easy use. With this task I implemented a table of context for our entire project work file so our team could easily read the table of context and know exactly which document was required to be opened. The table of context included the title of the file, location, and a short description about what the file contained. My team also presented in front of the NASA Propulsion Department chief engineers and project management. During this presentation, we were challenged to answer questions in a real time situation and because I helped prepare our team by practicing multiple times our team performed very well. After the presentation, one of the NASA managers told me he was very impressed by my ability to stay calm, answer the questions, and then remain on track with the presentation. Overall, this past summer I developed many skills related to project management, computer application skills, and working in a team environment.
