Electrical Power System

MITCHELL KURNELL

Position: Electrical Power Specialist, Team Leader

Area of Study: Level V Engineering Physics & Society, minor in Astronomy

Member Since:  January 2015

Science/Engineering Interests: Research and implementation of alternative power sources, such as solar. I intended to pursue a career in developing power systems for future space missions.

Motivation: I joined NEUDOSE to gain insight into the space technology field and to help pioneer a new group at McMaster. It is an amazing opportunity to be able to build a space satellite while doing my undergraduate degree. Furthermore, the realization that the research we will be conducting with this project may one day benefit people travelling to space is absolutely amazing.

Science/Engineering Interests: Research and hope for potential PhD in Consciousness' affect on the release of bio-photons, and its link to crystallography. Growing up in a world surrounded by rapidly growing technology makes me weary for the future. By placing myself in the middle of this growth, and hopefully being a driving force of the direction the growth takes, I hope to pave a better path for humanity as we shift into this new paradigm of science.

Motivation: Being a member of the NEUDOSE team here at Mac does not only allow me to get a foot in door in the world of engineering and integrated science, but also allows me to explore my interests in this field, and apply knowledge in a meaningful way that I've never yet done. Be the change you want to see in the world. I plan to start early, and by attempting a never before done project here at Mac I see a great opportunity to lead me into the real world, and put McMaster on the map, even more than it already is.

Science/Engineering Interests: I have an interest in different aspects of every science, which is why I applied to integrated sciences. As of now, I don't really have a particular preference for any specific area of science, they all resonate with me in a different way. In addition, I find it interesting to apply learned concepts to real world applications.

Motivation: Space has always fascinated me. I first heard about NEUDOSE in October of 2016 when Erica and Eric gave a presentation to the iSci class of 2020. I found it inspiring how a team of undergraduate students would be able to accomplish something so amazin, and I knew it was something I wanted to be apart of. I knew that hard work and dedication would be involved, but I'm always up for a challenge, and I was sure that I'd enjoy the process just as much as the end result.
