Dr. Paddy Neumann

Dr. Patrick ‘Paddy’ Neumann

Chief Scientist and Founder
Paddy studied aerospace engineering and physics as an undergraduate, which is where he first started working with electric propulsion systems. During his honours, masters and doctoral work he has refined the system he inherited, from a system optimised for the study of thin film deposition to one that serves as a testbed for thruster prototypes.
