I am a Project Manager, Principal Investigator, and Research Scientist at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View California, where I am focused on helping develop Distributed Space Systems (DSS) by leading the Distributed Spacecraft Autonomy (DSA) team for the Starling 1.0 Mission, the LPNT scalability demo, and several additional cubesat demonstration missions. I also research Autonomous Systems Perception for Urban Air Mobility by developing various Computer Vision algorithms & systems. I have a Master's degree from the University of Georgia's department of Computer Science. I founded the University of Georgia Small Satellite Research Laboratory, which has received grants from the USAF and NASA to build UGA's first two satellites. The first satellite, SPOC - the SPectral Ocean Color satellite, is slated to launch to the space station some time soon. The second satellite, MOCI - Multiview Onboard Computational Imager, does some fancy computer graphics things. Check out my research page of details about these satellite systems or their missions. I also worked as an intern at NASA Johnson on an audio telemetry system for the Orion Spacecraft. I spoke at TEDxUGA about the future of space exploration regarding small satellites and citizen science. I was one of the founders of UGA's hackathon program, known as UGA Hacks. I lead the team that won UGA's first hackathon title. This eventually became the company known as Scientific Space Systems LLC, which was bought by Cosmic Delivery. I have worked as a beta tester for Google Glass and helped make the first musical score viewing app for the device. I'm involved with multi-agent robotic systems research with a small research group in my lab - robots in progress. In my free time I'll mod my terminal, play with my old IBM PS/2, play kerbal space program, or eat Taco Bell.
