What advice can you offer to young scientists or engineers?

Make sure to have fun with what you do! Exploring planets can be extremely fun.

Why do you think Mars Exploration is important?

Comparative planetology is where it is at. Mars and the Earth are both planets. Mars is a place where we can see what happens when the situation is different.

Do you work on any other projects at your company?

It is important to cross-pollinate technologies between government agencies. I work hard to do technology transfer between NASA, NOAA, the USCG, and the USGS.
