Suhail Alsalehi is a visiting student in the System Architecture Lab, AeroAstro Department, MIT. Concurrently, he is pursuing a Master's degree in Space and Engineering Systems at the Space Center, Skoltech. He received a bachelor's degree with distinction in Mechatronics and Robotics from Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
Suhail has a deep interest in research related to complex systems. This includes various fields of Systems Engineering, System Architecture, Design and Control. He is currently working on his Master's thesis to address questions related to the early stages of conceptual design. His thesis aims at developing a rigor process to differentiate concepts at the conceptual level, which will reduce the work needed for the design space analysis and help to make more efficient architectural decisions.
With a strong academic background in Automated Systems, Space Systems and Systems Engineering, Suhail has worked in various projects. The last one was developing an antenna deployment system for a 3U CubeSat at German Orbital Systems GmbH, Berlin. He also have experience with concurrent design and automated systems at Skoltech's Space Center and Arwa Mineral Water Company, Sana'a.
Juan José Garau
Juan José is a graduate student in the AeroAstro department at MIT, currently pursuing a MSc degree. In 2017, under the CFIS program, he received two BS degrees in Telecommunications Engineering and Industrial Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, in Spain.
