Elena Kamis is an A.O.E. active Co-Op at the moment, she is a junior in aerospace engineering with a minor in atmospheric sciences. She is currently in her second block at Moog Space and Defense in East Aurora, NY. This past summer she was a New York Space Grant recipient, which allowed her to work in Moog’s development and test group on an array of NASA based projects including Orion, deep space satellites, cubesats and the eXperimental Space Plane (XSP). This fall she is switching into the systems department where she will focus on system verification, production engineering, and duty cycle analysis for Boeing’s XSP. Thus far she’s had the opportunity to work with Matlab, Simulink, MathCAD, ANSYS, Siemens NX, and more. When not at work Elena enjoys spending time at home with her family, supporting the Buffalo Bills through all their loses, and learning how to cook. Elena will be returning in the Spring of 2019 to continue her degree.
