Role/s in the Project:

I am doing the TMCR mission. Radiation in space give negative impact for satellite system. For example, MOSFET that is used as switch in satellite degrades performance because of radiation. So, I did radiation test in order to find out if components are strong against radiation. Moreover, I want to do this test in space, that is why I took this mission in BIRDS4 project. If I get the data from the  tests in space, I will be able to compare ground test and space test results in order to verify results from ground test.

How do you feel about being part of BIRDS-4 Satellite Project?

I am so proud to participate in this project and to have a chance to work with foreign people.

Any advice to people who are interested to be part of a satellite project in the future?

Treat each other with respect.
