I am space scientist specializing in development, application, calibration, and yield of space science instrumentation. I enjoy investigating the magnetic topology of the solar wind and exploring how multipoint measurements combined with data science enable better modeling of structures within the heliosphere.  I am a Co-Investigator and primary Instrument Scientist for the SPAN-Electron instruments on the recently-launched Parker Solar Probe, PI for the HelioSwarm Student Collaboration project, SEE, Instrument Lead for the ESCAPADE electron sensors, EESA, and PI for the Space Weather Instrument SPAN-E.

I like art, science, and the places where they meet.
