Mars Science Laboratory

I’m currently a flight director on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity mission in both Cruise/EDL and Surface phases. In addition during cruise I served as both a systems chair and activity lead throughout, based on what was happening that week. Prior to that, I worked on the Launch Cruise Approach phase testing and was the Launch/Cruise/EDL phase Mission Planner.
