Aaron J. Berliner

Aaron J. Berliner is a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley in the Departments of Nuclear Engineering and Bioengineering. Helping to establish the NASA-funded Center for the Utilization of Biological Engineering in Space (CUBES), his primary research is in the design of mission architectures that leverage biotechnology for long-term human space exploration. Anticipating the increasing importance of nuclear science in space exploration, he is interested in the mathematical and physical modeling of the impact of high-energy radiation from distant galaxies on shielding, secondary particle cascades, and astronaut countermeasures.
