mission area executive / Astrophysicist
I am an astrophysicist and the Mission Area Executive for Civil Space at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). I oversee APL’s critical contributions to design, build, and operate bold NASA and international missions that are solving decades-long challenges in space exploration. I oversee APL’s space-science research program from 100+ scientists in Civil Space, technology development programs, and operation of spacecraft and science instruments. I engage the next generation of the bright minds on the importance of science.
