August of 2006 Nate Ambler received a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida in Gainesville. During the following year, I taught physics/mathematics at Lyman High School in Florida, and was accepted and attended the University of Central Florida thermal-fluids doctoral program. Over the 2007 summer, I worked as a graduate research intern at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in cryogenics (F8). During this time I worked, with mentor Janira Ramos, on a helium recovery system for the external tank of the Space Shuttle. The project was accepted for approximately $100,000 in funding, after I had left it. My time on the project convinced me to pursue a interdisciplinary Masters of Science degree program at the University of North Dakota in Space Studies. There, I continued research in sensor behavior in reduced pressures as a thesis topic. This topic was originally investigated at KSC with University of North Florida professor Dr. Patel. The research involves an indium-tin oxide solid state ozone sensor, now slated to fly aboard NASA’s High Altitude Student Platform (HASP) balloon on September 1st. In early October, the research will be presented at the 59th IAC Congress in Glasgow, Scotland, concluding my studies at the University of North Dakota. Professionally he either seeks to participate in an active engineering/research environment, focused on the areas of propulsions, fluids, or systems, or seek to serve in the U.S. Air Force in a leadership role.
