PHEnOM: Citizen Scientist-Astronaut Candidate

I have been selected as a Scientist-Astronaut Candidate for Project PHEnOM  (Physiological, Health, and Environmental Observations in Microgravity)

This project is a microgravity human research program that will conduct cross-disciplinary research using a cradle-to-grave (ground evaluation to orbital) experiment design and technology maturation approach. The primary fields of research include: biomedical/health, pharmacology, and materials science.

As Scientist-Astronaut Candidate, I will undertake research in Earth-based laboratories, on parabolic aircraft, and eventually, aboard commercial suborbital spaceflight vehicles and other high-altitude, edge of space research platforms!

This project will evolve over the next 2 years as we train. So stay tuned for regular updates

Here’s a snippet of the press release about the candidate selection announcement:
