Background Information
I am a spacecraft instrument systems engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. I have worked on the Juno mission to Jupiter, unmanned Global Hawk atmospheric missions, and the Phoenix lander sent to the Martian arctic. For the past several years, I have been on the Mars Science Laboratory team, with the Curiosity Rover now en route to Gale Crater. I hold a B.S. in Physics and an M.S. in Aeronautics & Astronautics, both from Stanford University.

Contributions to Mars Exploration

When I first came to JPL in the summer of 2008, I spent a month on the operations team for the Mars Phoenix lander. I joined the team for Mars Science Laboratory in autumn of 2009. [more contributions ...]
