I’m a member of the Mission Engineering team on the Europa Clipper study at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. My prior positions include Engineering Systems, Mission Planner, and Integrated Launch and Cruise Verification and Validation Engineer on Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity, as well as Science Planner on the Cassini mission.
Once upon a time, I was Flight Director during Curiosity operations. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the University of Washington and a Master of Science in the same area from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I’ve always wanted to work on missions to Mars.
I play shortstop in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory softball league and usually ride my bike to work.
