PhD Candidate Thomas González Roberts has made Forbes 30 Under 30 in Science list for his research in satellite behavior.

Thomas advises international space decision-makers by interpreting space object data collected by ground- and space-based telescopes and radar systems. High-dimensional in nature, space object data—which can be used to describe where satellites have been and how they got there—is challenging to decipher, but critical for informing new rules under which space actors will coordinate their activities in an increasingly congested environment.
