Myk Dunn is a 25 year old queer and nonbinary Houston native. They are currently working as a Propulsion Test Engineer at Benchmark Space Systems, and they graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering. From a young age, Myk started out as a very hands-on individual; they deconstructed and reconstructed each and every toy they could get their hands on. As the years went by, Myk realized they were more interested in the designing of spacecraft and propulsion systems. Ultimately, pursuing a degree in aerospace engineering allows for them to combine their curiosity as well as their love for space travel.
Myk's main focus is creating greener and cleaner running propulsion systems in order to ensure the preservation of our world and space environment. In doing so, they take part in the designing, building and testing of state of the art spacecraft engines. Through the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs such as SolidWorks, they are able to bring innovate ideas to life, from design to production.
Separate from work, Myk and a friend of theirs are also in the beginning stages of developing a STEM-based non-profit organization geared towards underprivileged grade school children. Myk enjoys volunteering as a Peer Advisor for various space fellowships, and they also serve as an active member of the National Society of Black Engineers for professionals.
