(Short description>>)

I have had a long standing love and fascination for space and science. After obtaining my B.S. in electrical engineering I came to JPL as a summer intern and switched to academic part time when I began to pursue my masters degree in Communication/DSP. Since then I have obtained my masters and am current working full time on the next rover going to Mars as one of the lead investigators on actuator and motion control issues.

I attended Cal Poly Pomona from 2003-2007 and obtained my B.S. in Electrical Engineering with a strong emphasis in DSP/Communication. I have received my masters degree from Cal Poly Pomona in Communication and Microwave Engineering.

I had worked in industry at a Laser Welding/Systems company before arriving to JPL. I have strong abilities in FPGA programming, analog circuit design, object oriented programming, system level design, vision algorithms, schematic/PCB design, control systems, hardware trouble shooting, and DSP.
Projects Ive worked on have been:
-Remote Science for MSL
-IMCS - Red Team for MSL
-AEGSE for MSL
-Formation Control Testbed
-Optical Pointing Loop
-ANS

Flight Project and Research Task Involvement

Flight Projects:
