After several years pursuing astrophysics with the LIGO collaboration, I’ve landed at SpaceX developing advanced sensors for human spaceflight. My team at SpaceX designs the low cost, high performance, and reliable sensors that will enable humans to travel to Mars. Its been very rewarding to work in a fast-paced, challenging environment on projects that fly in space, and fly soon.
