Paul Hyoungsang Shin, Space Enterprise at Berkeley (SEB)
Paul H. Shin and Victor M. Garza are the founders of Space Enterprise at Berkeley (SEB). They started SEB because they noticed the UC Berkeley has a large population of students, not just in the sciences and engineering, who are very interested in space but have no clear the way of getting involved on-campus due to the lack of endorsed space programs or organizations.
So, to open up more opportunities for students, they structured SEB to comprise of 5 project teams (space propulsion, policy, medicine, environment, and technology) to work on projects that address a wide variety of relevant issues in space. By doing so they were not only able to get students involved but also able to tackle problems more effectively by using a collaborative approach. Their team projects range from allowing astronauts to be able to perform surgery in micro-gravity to studying terra-forming optimal microbial growth in simulated Martian soil.
