Student, Technical University of Munich (TUM)

Kavya Kamepalli is currently pursuing her Master's in Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and ISAE-SUPAERO, France (a double-degree program). Her interests lie in spacecraft propulsion, space environment, and orbital mechanics. Previously, she has participated in conferences organized and funded by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) where her ideas emphasized using Space-based technologies to overcome existing bottlenecks in Sustainable Development Goals #2 and #4. She is currently working on 'Hypervelocity simulations on Granular Media' where the behavior of ejecta (similar to that on the surface of asteroids) during crater formation is studied.
