    CV

    Objective:         Instrumentation and test platform specialist pursuing opportunities to utilize my years of R&D, organization and leadership experience within NASA and academia to advance and support high-profile projects to meet a company’s scientific or technological goals. Seeking positions for 2017/18.

    Summary:         Professional with a multifaceted career in research, administration and academia, including:

     - Leadership and technical skills in instrument prototyping and testing

     - Talent as a liaison between scientists and engineers on high-profile space platform projects

     - Years of experience in public speaking, outreach and teaching at the University level

    NASA Phase A Project Manager, Energetic Time-of-Flight (ETOF) instrument  

     - Designed and constructed a prototype charged-particle rejecting neutral atom spectrometer (ETOF) for a NASA Phase A site visit, on time and within budget. (Design team lead)

     - Performed proof-of-concept and functional testing routines for the prototype  ETOF instrument (Test team lead)

    MESSENGER Mission:

     - Designed, ran and analyzed the results of charged-particle optics simulations in the design and development of the Fast Imaging Plasma Spectrometer (FIPS), a low-mass (4 kg), low-power (1.4 W) plasma mass spectrometer

     - Designed, ran and analyzed the results of FIPS prototype testing at the Goddard Space Flight Center 

     - Developed and performed FIPS flight instrument testing and calibration routines at University of Michigan 

     - Head, UM pre-integration environmental testing team at the Applied Physics Laboratory

     - Delivered fully-calibrated flight-ready FIPS instrument to integration facility on time, despite an ever-shifting (and ever-shortening)  delivery schedule

    Laboratory and testbed design:

     - Designed, developed and constructed the Mass Spectrometry and Time-of-Flight Laboratories at the UM Space Physics Research Laboratory 

    Other experiences and skillsets:

     - UM instrument design team member, Interstellar Probe Mission (Co-investigator)

    Academic Research Directorships and Experience

    Faculty Member, Eastern Michigan University (2005 – present):

    Director/Adviser: Ion Beamline Development Program (Graduate Masters projects)

     - With my supervision and technical advice, Masters students developed and characterized a low energy (<1 keV) ion beam which will be used to simulate the solar wind's sputtering of neutral atoms from the surfaces of asteroids, planets and their satellites.

    Director: Small Radio Telescope Project (Undergraduate research project, ongoing)

     - Undergraduate researchers are encouraged to explore and experiment in the design of subsystems for a small (3-meter dish) radio telescope under my guidance and “hands-off” supervision.

    Principle Investigator: Physics Scholars Program (National Science Foundation Grant)

     - As a recruiter and evaluator for this scholarship program, I encourage talented incoming freshman to participate in one of two research-oriented physics majors by providing opportunity for substantial financial aid packages over the course of four years.

    Panel reviewer, proposals for NASA Solar and Heliospheric division programs
