A member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, EuroScience and Space Generation Advisory Council, Rama has been an intern at the Indian Space Research Organization’s Satellite Center, and was also selected as 'Interim Communication Subsystem lead' for a Mars robotic mission at NASA Ames Research Center.

ManSat Chief Executive Officer Chris Stott says: "We are fortunate to have Rama join our team.

"To have him work from the Island and to make it his home is a double blessing for us as we all work to expand the company’s services both here at home and abroad."
