Anna Boettcher
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Anna Boettcher is a software engineer and mathematician working in the operable robotics group at JPL. She has worked on software from embedded systems through front end and back end web application programming, control systems, and flight software. Her mathematics background spans combinatorial optimization, statistical modeling, and computational fluid dynamics. In all of those pursuits there is one central question: How can one use a computer to approximate an observation, and make an inference from that approximation?
