I presume you are referring to Fatima Dyczynski the 24-year-old aerospace engineer, a promising young
innovator, who founded her own technology start-up with a vision of making
space accessible to anyone.
She did her degree in aerospace, aeronautical and astronautical engineering at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
She reportedly worked on the amateur radio satellite Delfi-n3Xt.
I don't know if she was licensed.
I also saw the stories about the Ukrainian Air Force Pilot ceased by insurgents and currently held in Russia Надія Савченко. Her name
was converted to English by various news sources as either Nadia, Nadezhda,
Nadiya or Natalia Savchenko. She used to be a Military Radio Operator and her sister said of her "She can repair little problems with electrical devices". Again may possibly be an amateur.

I heard part of something on the news about one of the victims of the
Aircraft shootdown in the Ukraine was a young Aerospace engineer working on
a design for a constellation of cubesats for low cost communication with
individuals on the ground.
Sounds like a HAMsat project to me. Anyone know the story?
