Graphene Space Habitat

Dr Vivek Koncherry is the CEO of Graphene Space Habitat Ltd (GSH). GSH is developing a Space Habitat for sustainable human settlement in space using an advanced manufacturing process, advanced materials, and artificial intelligence.

Advanced materials like graphene and other two-dimensional materials will play a significant role in space structures for thermal management, radiation shielding, insulation and micrometeoroids impact damage tolerance. The team is currently based in its own lab at the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) at the University of Manchester.
