Research interests

Space Experiments

  • LAICE -- Lower Atmosphere/Ionosphere Coupling Experiment, 2016 launch
  • ALICE -- AFIT LEO iMESA Carbon nanotube Experiment, 2012 launch

Space Situational Awareness (SSA)

  • Expanding the available SSA data to include serendipitous data collected from ground and space-based platforms to develop a fundamentally new capability for space object detection, estimation, and characterization.

Orbit Optimization

  • Developing automated optimal problem-driven space system design and satellite collection methodologies to produce better, more accurate, more timely, high confidence data.
