Patrick McGarey, PhD
Robotics Technologist
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Patrick McGarey is a Robotics Technologist at JPL in the Robotic Mobility Group. Patrick received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Toronto, where he was a visiting Fulbright Scholar. His research is focused on the development of systems and autonomy functions for the exploration of extreme environments throughout the solar system. Currently, Patrick is working on the Axel/DuAxel rover to enable advanced mobility for the exploration of RSL features on Mars and lava tubes on the Moon.
