Hello, I'm Evan Hilgemann!
I work as a mechanical engineer at NASA-JPL. My goal is to improve spaceflight systems by maturing novel technologies.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge of space and technology with the general public and regularly give talks and to local organizations. I've run 3D Printing programs at local libraries and I do bicycle repair for groups like the Pasadena Repair Cafe.
I moonlight as a telescope operator at the Griffith Observatory. You can find me there once or twice a week running telescopes and educating the public on space and astronomy.
I like to spend my free time exploring the diverse wilderness of southern California. You might run into me hiking in the San Gabriel Moutains or scuba diving off the coast of Catalina.
