Hi, my name is Ethan Geipel.

 

I'm a graduate student at the University of Southern California (USC) pursuing a master's degree in Astronautical Engineering. I work  at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) as a mechanical engineer in the packaging engineering division. My academic/ professional interests include robotics, mechanical design and fabrication, computational analysis, space exploration, and astronomy.

Here's some other things about me:

I like running, and I think you would too. If nothing else, it's a great way to be able to eat more. I have a telescope and I like taking pictures of space (look at the background). You can check out some of my astrophotography (as well as some non-space pictures) here. It's important that you know that my favorite movie is Wall-e.
