Joaquin Ramirez became enamored by space in his early childhood. Inspired by the beauty of the cosmos and yearning to one day reach them himself, Ramirez graduates with a bachelor's in Aerospace Engineering as he takes one step closer to the stars. Joaquin is the first-ever in his family to graduate college. Joaquin is excited to intern as a systems engineer for Sierra Space this summer, where he will work on the spaceplane Dream Chaser and commercial space station Orbital Reef. From there, he will pursue a masters in Bioastronautics at CU Boulder with the hopes of eventually developing space habitats for future lunar/martian missions.
His research experience involves developing new ways to measure light wavelengths via Raman spectroscopy and determining the efficacy of galvanic vestibular stimulation as a display modality for the bioastronautics lab.
