At Arizona State University Kai leads a team in developing SIMOC, an
interactive model of scalable Mars habitat (https://simoc.space/). Built upon NASA data in closed ecosystem research and life support system, SIMOC is both a research and educational tool.

potential of bringing Pacific Spaceflight expertise into a closed
ecosystem analog in which SIMOC is fully integrated.
