Mission Planner, Mars Operations

Who I Am
I am the mission planner for Mars operations at NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory in Pasadena, California. During the mission, I work with all
the elements of the flight team to coordinate trajectories, science plans
and spacecraft operations into the overall mission itinerary.
I'm originally from San Diego, Calif., I'm 28 years old, and I have
degrees from Berkeley in electrical engineering and from the University
of Texas in astronautics. I recently published a book on spaceflight mechanics
for the layperson.
