This astronaut is one of the astronauts who will go into space, possibly with the SpaceX Crew Dragon. According to NASA with knowledge of astronomical engineering and engineering techniques, he also obtained bachelor's degrees in the above.

NASA is collaborating with SpaceX to launch the SpaceX Crew Dragon to the International Space Station.
It will be a fairly long mission that will require time and patience, but a very important one. This spacecraft will be launched along with SpaceX's Falcon 9. the latest possible launch date is October 31, 2021 and aims to send new astronauts to the ISS (International Space Station) for a while. It will be launched from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, SpaceX and NASA announced.
NASA: "The launch will transport three NASA astronauts - Chari mission commander, pilot Tom Marshburn and mission specialist Kayla Barron to the space station - as well as European Space Agency astronaut Matthias Maurer, who will serve as a mission specialist." They will go to the low-orbit microgravity laboratory on Earth and stay there to complete the mission for 6 months.
But so far it has not been announced exactly what will be done in those 6 months, we hope that something useful, as before.
We wish success to the astronauts and to NASA, SpaceX, the ISS and all those who deal with this mission!
