Dr. Ana Diaz Artiles is an engineering professor at Texas A&M University researching ways to further human space flight by designing a novel space suit. Her lab’s recent work to develop the SmartSuit concept combines soft-robotics, biometric monitoring, and advances in material sciences to bring Extravehicular Activity suits into the 21st century. 

We talk artificial gravity, problem-solving as an engineer, and working with the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA in this exciting episode.
