Joven Tan, a PhD Candidate at the University of Adelaide in the School of Civil Environmental and Mining Engineering (CEME), is currently immersed in his research endeavors. His primary focus lies in the development of bio-inspired swarm robotics models for their potential application in off-earth mining, particularly for water-ice extraction on the Lunar surface. Joven actively contributes as a member of The University of Adelaide's multi-disciplinary space research group, operating within the esteemed Andy Thomas Centre for Space Resources (ATCSR). This collaborative environment allows him to engage with fellow researchers from diverse educational backgrounds. Prior to embarking on his PhD journey, Joven pursued post-graduate coursework at The University of Adelaide, where he successfully completed his studies in December 2020, graduating with distinction.
