I work in the fields of astronomical instrumentation and optical sciences - a technologist with more than a decade of experience designing, building, testing, and contributing to the innovation of UV/Optical/IR space-based systems and technology. I'm interested in things like Solar System exploration and high-contrast imaging for discovering and studying nearby worlds. I want to find out how  we got here and see what comes next.
