AEM alumnus researches the use of robotics in space

Bryce Doerr has always felt inspired by the achievements of the United States space program. The College of Science and Engineering alumnus grew up hearing stories about the Apollo program and the moon landing and witnessed the current investment to space exploration with the Artemis missions. Doerr knew he wanted to contribute to the development of technology to help progress humanity forward through the unknown.

Pursuing his passion, Doerr graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 2019 with his doctoral degree in aerospace engineering and mechanics. In October 2019, Doerr joined the Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program and began conducting research on space robotics. The IC Postdoc Program is administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). The program offers scientists and engineers from a wide variety of disciplines unique opportunities to conduct research relevant to the Intelligence Community.
