Research in life support systems

De la Mora Lab, Yale University, January 2014 – May 2014

To fulfill a requirement for my ABET Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, I spent a semester doing research on an amine regeneration reactor for a space life support system. I have built, improved and characterized the performance of a reactor based on a technology promising a high efficiency. Final report is here. My work was a fraction of a larger project, which was presented at the International Conference on Environmental Systems in 2015. You can download the paper here.
