This year’s fellows are Scott Ziegler and Celeste Castillo.
Scott ZieglerCandidate for MEng in Mechanical Engineering
- Undergraduate Degree: Mechanical Engineering, Western Michigan University
- Capstone Project: Lunar Kinetic Energy Transmission This project offers key in-space energy distribution, materials transportation and infrastructure services. We are looking to build the most cost effective, long range, cableless energy and materials distribution system that will power and accelerate lunar and space exploration. As Space Kinetic, a new startup formed by Scott Ziegler and Vu Vuong from the Berkeley Lunar Kinetic capstone team, we aim to be the leading space utility and services provider to propel humanity’s multi-planetary future. Faculty advisor: Van P. Carey [ME]

- Undergraduate Degree: Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Davis
- Capstone Project: Heating and Cooling Pad for Therapeutic Treatment Contrast therapy is a form of treatment where skin on part of the body, or the entire body, is exposed to high (~45C) and low (~15C) temperatures. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Contrast therapy is effective in increasing blood flow, reducing muscle stiffness, increasing muscle elasticity, and relieving pain. When compared to heat and cold alone, contrast therapy is better at treating delayed onset muscle soreness. When compared to active recovery, contrast therapy offered similar benefits but also reduced ratings of fatigue. There are many benefits to contrast therapy, but it is difficult and effortful to achieve at home. This project aims at designing a device that allows the user to effortlessly perform contrast therapy in a localized region of the body. Faculty advisor: Van P. Carey [ME]
