Hi, I'm Roemer! I am the Aether team founder. My interest in Aerospace has always driven my studies. After my Master's in Mechanical Engineering I wanted to push this further, which led to the start of Aether in 2020. In the first year we chose the topic of atmospheric entry. The subjects we stumbled upon interested me so much, that they led to a Research Master at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in 2021-2022 and now a subsequent PhD. I am working to improve the methodology for testing Thermal Protection Systems on the ground in plasma wind tunnels, to make their design more efficient. In my free time I like to make music, by playing the guitar in a band. We're called Onionfuzz and you should check us out on Spotify.
