1983, Bachelor of Science in Physics and Astronomy, University of Iowa

I work with engineers and scientists to ensure the performance of space-based optical instruments for scientific applications. I participate in every stage of the process, and have been responsible for the instrument concept in the proposal and for publication of scientific results in the mission. My core capability is optical calibration and testing, both laboratory and flight.

My recent experience has been with cameras and imaging spectrometers designed mostly to study the surfaces of Solar System bodies, including Mars (CRISM), the Moon (LROC), and Europa (EIS). I also have considerable interest and expertise in imaging spectrometers for studying coastal regions on Earth, ocean color as well as emergent and terrestrial vegetation.
