Introduction
I work at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory where I specialize in designing systems to land on Mars, Venus, and return to Earth and plasma propulsion systems for deep space exploration. I also manage the Cold Atom Laboratory Mission (CAL), an Ultra Cold Quantum Gas Facility scheduled to be launched to the International Space Station in 2016. In the evenings I teach spacecraft design in the Astronautics Department at the University of Southern California. Opinions expressed are my own.
