Robotics Systems Engineer
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Jeffrey A. Edlund is currently the communications lead for JPLs DARPA Subterranean challenge team which won a 2nd place trophy in August 2019. He is also helping to develop simulation tools for Mars 2020. He received his Ph.D. in Computation and Neural Systems and a B.S. in Physics from Caltech in 2019 and 2004 respectively. He was previously a Member of the Technical Staff in JPL section 3266, where he developed a simulation of the galactic gravitational background in Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) data. In graduate school he collaborated with JPL on the development of the Axel II and III rovers (leading to US Patent 8,496,077 B2). He has also studied evolving developmental neural networks, information integration in stochastic logic networks, EMG data analysis, and epidural electrostimulation of spinal cords. His Ph.D. thesis was titled: "Numerical investigation of spinal neuron facilitation with multi-electrode epidural stimulation."
