My Curriculum Vitae

Current work

Primarily I am the lead orbit determination analyst for the Parker Solar Probe mission. This revolutionary spacecraft will launch in July-August of 2018 and will fly faster and closer to the Sun than any other man-made object. The environment is incredibly challenging, not to mention very hot! This probe aims to unlock the mysteries of the solar corona, and we are busily preparing for launch. I am a member of the Psyche mission design and navigation team, working in collaboration with my Alma Mater ASU. I contribute to a variety of flight, pre-flight, and research tasks touching many aspects of robotic and human space exploration.
