Hi, my name is Zaid 🍁
I am a Junior Program Scientist at the Canadian Space Agency. I have previously completed a traineeship at the European Space Agency in lunar exploration and space resources as well as space operations.
Aspiring to pursue graduate studies in planetary science, autonomous systems, and systems design for space exploration.
In recent years, I have been crafting my passion for space by developing an Earth Observation mission (SC-ODIN), engaging with the UN Space Generation Advisory Council and working with space programs on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean — at the Canadian Space Agency and European Space Agency.
As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
