Nicolas completed his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering and Physics with a minor in Mathematics at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida in 2015, and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2017 while being a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. Subsequently, Nicolas was hired at The Aerospace Corporation as a Propulsion Test Engineer in the Electric Propulsion & Plasma Science group where he supports EMI/EMC compliance and RF (multipactor) component testing. Now, Nicolas is now also an Aerospace Fellow and is in his first year of doctoral work where his research focus is on the connection between the electromagnetic radiated emissions that emanate from a plasma and the plasma processes that created those emissions.
