Aman Chandra received an MS in Aerospace Engineering at Arizona State University. He is currently a PhD student at the Univeristy of Arizona’s department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering. His master’s thesis dissertation is on inflatable communication antennas for small satellites. As a former design engineer at General Electric, he specialized in thermo-mechanical design and packaging of ultrasonic transducers and medical imaging systems. He has vast experience in the structural design of CubeSats, small satellite systems and deployable mechanism design. His current research interests include computational geometric modelling of compliant linkages, deployable origami design and packaging methods and non-linear finite element modelling.
