Michael is the Principal Investigator for two NASA funded technological demonstrations of additive manufacturing. The 3D Print Experiment launches to the ISS in 2014 and the AMF, a long-term additive manufacturing facility, is estimated for 2015.

Michael is the Acting Assistant Secretary of the National Space Society and is the current secretary of AIAA’s Space Colonization Technical Committee, and a member since 2009. In 2011 he received his Master of Science in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Ohio State University. During college he started Schuder Technologies to work on space power systems, planetary rovers capable of prolonged exploration and green energy concepts based on developed space systems.

His professional resume includes developmental work on multiple International Space Station payloads. He has designed or participated in the developmental testing and flight verification for six payloads to the ISS (flown aboard the ULF7, ULF5, HTV-2 and HTV-3 missions). He has published over a dozen technical papers and presented concepts for advanced space and Earth systems to international audiences. His motivation to help mankind explore and colonize space is accomplished through his daily work at Made In Space and from his public outreach and engagement activities.
