Prof Mini Saaj: A Dream Career in Space Engineering
Isn’t it exciting to be a space engineer? Mini will be sharing her fascinating journey from being a student who loved mathematics, to becoming a professor specialising in space engineering.
In this inaugural lecture, Prof Mini Saaj will talk about her research in Space Robotics – in-space assembly of telescopes, servicing satellites, asteroid mining, and planetary surface exploration missions. Mini will talk about her vision on growing Space Engineering research at the University of Lincoln and discuss the challenges we need to address as a community. She will introduce a few national and international initiatives that she is part of, which has opened up exciting opportunities for researchers in Lincoln. Besides sharing her experience as a Space Roboticist, Mini will also cover her success stories in cross-sector research, spanning Medical Robotics, Agri-Robotics and Nuclear Robotics.
