      In the short term I’d like to see through my current project, which will observe the sun to look out for and warn us about space weather events, where the sun spits out charged particles which can disrupt power grids and satellite systems (like GPS). It’s due for launch in 2025.
      Longer term I’d like to lead a research team of my own which develops the cutting-edge space technology of the future
