Some of my most rewarding experiences come when I an able to talk with you directly. Most often this occurs when I give invited lectures or sit on panels at Space Science Conferences, Amateur Radio Conventions, Universities, and Planetariums. This is when I am able to have in-depth interactions, connecting with kindred spirits, who share the same passion for human and robotic exploration of near-Earth space. Of course, I also serve in an official capacity on proposal review and outreach panels for civil and government agencies, including NASA, The American Meteorological Society (AMS), The National Science Foundation (NSF), and more.
My current position is as a research scientist at The Aerospace Corporation in Southern California. My work is primarily in the fields of solar and space physics, but I also evaluate materials for use in space radiation environments. I am an instructor at the Aerospace Institute and have served as an audio forensics analyst and instructor for the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC), hosted at Aerospace and funded by the Department of Justice. For those wanting more technical detail, I have included my CV and publication list in the links below.
