Listen to this fun conversation between Prof. Diaz-Artiles and Jake Robins on WeMartians podcast about our spacesuit work!
A new lab publication is out!

Congratulations to Renee Woodruff for receiving a 4-year NASA NSTGRO Fellowship to investigate astronaut behavioral health using Virtual Reality technologies!
Congratulation to Blaze and Kate for their new journal publication on npj Microgravity about EVA and spacesuits!
Belobrajdic B., Melone K., Diaz-Artiles, A. “Planetary Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Risk Mitigation Strategies for Long Duration Space Missions”. NPJ Microgravity 7, 16 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41526-021-00144-w.
Congratulation to PhD student Rich Whittle for his new journal publication!
Whittle R.S. and Diaz-Artiles A. “Modeling Individual Differences in Cardiovascular Response to Gravitational Stress using a Sensitivity Analysis“. Journal of Applied Physiology 2021 [In Press].
Ph.D. student Rich Whittle was recently awarded the Vice-Chancellor’s Prize at Cranfield University (U.K.) following his M.Sc. in Astronautics and Space Engineering. In this short video, Rich talks about his time at Cranfield and his research on emergency life support systems for lunar EVA with Wing Commander (Dr.) Pete Hodkinson RAF, the U.K.’s first aviation and space medicine consultant physician.
Welcome to the website for the new Bioastronautics and Human Performance Research Group in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University. Take a look around, some parts of the site are still under construction but we are working to get things up and running.
