MEET THE TEAM
The countdown company’s team is founded on friendships forged while building an experimental rocket in EPFL’s rocket team. More than a bonding experience, the rocket team’s challenges have taught us to work together under pressure. Although young, our team has already weathered many adventures and is ready to face your next challenge.
Malo Goury du Roslan – CEO
EPFL Master in robotics, intern at RUAG Space, Malo has experience in system engineering and robotic simulation. In the rocket team he was part of the recovery team before becoming lead engineer. He is a natural leader, always bringing positive energy to the team and keeping things on track.
Julien Rey – Lead Engineer/Designer
EPFL Master in mechanical engineering, with prior professional experience in the swiss industry as accountant. Julien has an exceptionally broad understanding of technical systems. He is also an astounding self taught machinist. His skills have proved a key asset for the rocket team’s success and continue to define him as a strong engineer.
Héloïse Boross – System Engineer
EPFL Master in microtechnic engineering, intern at NASA, and trainee at ESA, Héloïse has an undoubtable passion for space. A hard and very meticulous worker, her abilities are considered highly everywhere she goes. From the rocket team to government space agencies, she has proven her skills in system engineering of exploration robots, satellite power supplies and many more.
Christian Cardinaux – Mechanical Engineer
HEIG mechanical system engineer and previously intern at RUAG Space. Christian has been the longest active member in the rocket team. He is currently working on the companies’ first projects and continuously searching for new opportunities. His unique social skills make him a capable sales person and with a precious outreach abilities.
Guilain Lang – Test Engineer
Completing an EPFL Master in microtechnic engineering, Guilain has interned in labs and companies specialised in optical systems. He is also a very versatile engineer, always motivated to take up new challenges. His experience in the rocket team ranges from designing and manufacturing custom parachutes to managing the technical development of a rocket.
Emilien Mingard – Analyst
EPFL Master in mechanical engineering and working towards an aerospace engineering degree at ISAE-SUPAERO. Emilien is naturally talented with a remarkable ability to focus on complex problems. He is also very handy and has shown perseverance in manufacturing mechanical components for the rocket team. Shortly, he will start as an intern at RUAG Space.
Eric Brunner – Analyst
EPFL Master in mechanical engineering and working towards an aerospace engineering degree at ISAE-SUPAERO. Eric has this incredible ability to segment the most complex problems into smaller and solvable ones and when coupled with his eager desire to learn and a dedicated approach of work, it made him a natural lead system engineer of the rocket team despite his preference for technical analysis work
