I am a planetary scientist and aerospace engineer working at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, CO. For almost two decades, I have been involved in the exploration of our Solar System, either as an engineer or as a scientist. In that time, I have become fascinated with understanding the physics of the atmospheres that envelope some of our terrestrial and icy worlds. In particular, my research focuses on the atmospheres of Mars and Titan.
