What advice can you offer to young scientists or engineers?

Find someone who has the job you would like to do, determine their credentials, chart a course to obtain that pedigree for yourself, then go forward focused on that goal and do not look back! Always volunteer for the hardest assignments. Solve them by relying on the smart people around you.

What portion of this mission interests you the most?

I enjoy the drama associated with flight operations and the camaraderie of a badge-less JPL-LMA-Science team.

Do you have any hobbies?

I have been married for 16 years and have two children (ages 14 and 12). My hobby is mountaineering, particularly expeditionary climbing.
