Ethan is a junior, majoring in Aerospace Engineering & Mechanics and minoring in Astrophysics and Computer Science, at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities. He is originally from the small town of Swanville, Minnesota. He spent the summer of 2017 working on web development projects for the MnSGC, and he spent the summer of 2018 working on web development projects and documentation reviews for the SmallSat Team. He has worked with the Rocket Team in the past in the areas of web development and simulations, and he plans to become involved with the AIAA this upcoming year. Eventually, he would like to pursue a graduate degree in Aerospace Engineering & Mechanics so that he can do more dedicated research, and so that he can teach aspiring aerospace engineers, as he is extremely passionate about STEM and getting people interested in the sciences.
