Hi, I’m Adrian Ildefonso.
I’m a research engineer in the Radiation Effects and Optoelectronics Branch at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. I’m currently working on developing experimental techniques to study how space radiation affects electronics systems.
As a scientist, I believe life is one big experiment. I encourage people to craft small experiments around their behaviors and habits to figure out how to live their best lives.
I’m a big fan of craft beer and the brewing process, though I’m partial to IPAs and sour beers. I also enjoy mixing cocktails, in particular whiskey- and mezcal-based drinks. Recently, I have started baking bread (It’s just science, right?)
