2-week long simulation at the MDRS

I am the Crew Scientist in Crew 228 that is scheduled for Sep 26 - Oct 9 2021 at the MDRS.

I will be a member of 8 people international crew that will simulate human operations on Mars at the Mars Desert Research Station. For two weeks, we will live as if on Mars: stay in an 8-meter diameter circular hab, put on simulated space suits every time we go outside, recycle our water, and eat shelf-stable food. During simulation, I will conduct participant observation and collect data on gender, status, and group dynamics. Read more about our mission and our crew here .
