Biography
I'm an aerospace engineer with a Bachelors degree from Carleton University in Canada and a Masters degree from MIT. My areas of interest are space system engineering, sustainable space exploration and atmospheric flight mechanics. After graduate school, I worked for several years in air traffic control research. Then, I worked at the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research as an Assistant Project Engineer where I'm worked on a space telescope that will search for exoplanets. Currently, I am working as a contractor at NASA Jet Propulsion Lab testing the entry, descent and landing system electronics and software for the Mars 2020 rover mission.
