Pau Garcia Buzzi is a PhD student in Aerospace Engineering at the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University.
Prior to Texas A&M, Pau received a double Bachelor’s degree in industrial and telecommunications engineering from Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (BarcelonaTech) in Barcelona, Spain. In August 2018, he graduated with a Master’s of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering at the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University. He is particularly interested in the coverage analysis and constellation design for Earth observation missions.
During his Master’s degree, Pau worked under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Selva as part of the orbit and constellation design team of the NASA-funded Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation Structure and Storm Intensity (TROPICS) mission. This experience provided him with valuable experience and insight into the orbit analysis and design of large constellations of Earth observing satellites.
In the short term, he looks forward to continuing his investigation and applying machine learning and optimization techniques to the orbit and constellation design of future space missions.
Outside of academics, Pau enjoys outside activities including fitness and running, and he has a lifelong passion for soccer.
