Louisiana Tech Aerospace Engineering Club Involvement

At the end of my freshman year at Louisiana Tech my classmates and I had the idea to create a club focused on developing an aerospace focus at Louisiana Tech University. In 2016 we were successful with the launch of our first high-altitude balloon and have since launched six more balloons and successfully recovered each of them. I am currently serving on the leadership board of the club. During my time with the club I have designed high-altitude balloon payloads, launched and recovered balloons, and I am currently leading a team launching a superpressure balloon to circumnavigate the globe.
