I was the System Engineer for the Mars Environmental Compatibility Assessment (MECA) instrument that is now part of the 2007 Mars Scout mission. I delivered MECA for the Mars 2001 Lander that was cancelled. MECA includes a microscope and sample collection wheel, an atomic force microscope, and wet chemistry laboratories for the analysis of Martian dust and soil.
Personnel within my Payload System Engineering group support the MRO payload office, and I support them as necessary.
Payload Project Element Manager for APXS, MB, and Mini-TES. Science and Imaging Downlink Coordinator for MER mission operations.
