Hey! My name is Parmida Mahdavi and I am a junior in Engineering Physics with an ASI in Space and Planetary Science and Engineering and a minor in Public Affairs. This year I will be serving as your secretary on the AIAA board. I truly enjoy being a part of this organization and as my second year serving on the board, I hope that I can bring opportunities to all Mines students interested in Aerospace. I served as a research and build intern on the CSM LILL-E Pad NASA BIG Idea Team alongside our AIAA president Nikki. I’m also involved in the multicultural organization on campus called Kickstart and Society of Physics Students (SPS). I’m originally from Iran but grew up mostly in Colorado Springs and in my free time I enjoy cooking, drawing and once winter comes, you’ll see me skiing almost every weekend. Please feel free to reach out to me at any point this year!
