Spinning Out in the Orbit: Investigating the Issue of Collision Control and Risk Management Measures in Outer Space
Lorena Melisa Uysal
My name is Lorena Melisa – which is a mouthful, so I go by Mel. I am currently studying law and will be chairing UNOOSA this year. To say I am excited is an understatement, as space and space law are subjects I am particularly very passionate about.
Other than nerding about space law, I spend most of my time trying to understand how the things around us work, whether it is reading about how our brains work, why some languages have different words for ananas pineapple, to if leaves can actually see (spoiler alert: they can see). My first MUN experience was when I was 15, and I have taken part in various other simulations ever since then. It was what changed my mind about the degree I wanted to pursue, as I had studied up until the last year of high school to be a med student.
I look forward to meeting you all!
