“I love the team at Neumann Space, and the project ownership we have.”
James has always had a passion for Space, but never thought a career in the Space industry was possible in Australia. That was until he attended the Aerospace Futures Conference. After the conference he started studying astrophysics and pursuing a career in Space.
He holds a double degree at Monash University (Science and Applied Maths) and a Certificate 4 in Applied Manufacturing at TAFE.
James completed an internship at the German Aerospace Centre’s (DLR), Institute of Combustion Dynamics where he worked with a small team to analyse instabilities inside combustion chambers for rocket engines. He was also part of the team who built a hybrid rocket engine for Monash High Powered Rocketry and a part of Monash Nova Rover where he and the team competed in Utah at the University Rover Challenge, USA in 2019.
