Primary technical career focus has been the design and implementation of ASICs and VLSI circuits as well as logic design using FPGAs.  Implemented standard and radiation-tolerant ASICs for novel spacecraft and terrestrial applications. Prior to space-oriented work, experience includes support of CMOS process development, transistor device physics and modeling, and DSP ASIC design for telecommunications. Implemented FPGAs for spacecraft avionics and communications subsystems for multiple JHU/APL missions including MESSENGER, New Horizons, and Van Allen Probes. Served as PI for externally funded grants for image compression and radiation hardened circuit design as well as internally funded electronics developments. Currently serving as the lead for Europa Clipper mission’s Radiation Monitoring Subsystem, which will assess total ionizing dose and the energetic electron environment for spacecraft hazards. Also serving as the avionics lead for the Dragonfly mission to Titan, with oversight of the electronics development and implementation for spacecraft interfaces, computing, and health monitoring.
