Flight Dynamics Analyst, COM DEV Canada, 2009-2011
 
- Architected a payload planning algorithm to optimize the duty cycles, data latency and downlink opportunities for a constellation of uniquely constrained AIS satellites
 
- Provided expert support for multiple satellite missions using STK and ad-hoc software tools in the form of orbital and coverage analyses, link and command budgets and performance diagnostics
 
- Wrote and executed software test plans; wrote and peer-reviewed software requirements, mission requirements and interface control documents
 
 
 
Design Engineer, Airbus Germany, 2004-2005
 
- Studied the low-speed aerodynamic characteristics of future civilian aircraft in a highly dynamic multinational team
 
- Developed software to rapidly design and analyze high-lift devices, reducing wing design time by approx. 20%
 
 
 
Spacecraft Engineering Intern, Canadian Space Agency, 2001
 
- Wrote attitude control algorithms in C++ and MATLAB and integrated them into a real-time, hardware-in-the-loop simulator for the QUICKSAT microsatellite project
