2001 - Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering, University of Texas

2005 - Masters of Science in Physics, Univ. of Houston at Clear Lake

Professional Background:
(1993 - 1996)
While in school at the University of Houston, I was a Research Assistant at the Texas Center For Superconductivity.  My duties involved fabrication of numerous superconducting compounds and their associated cryogenic measurements.  While a the lab I coauthored two published papers.

(1996 - 1998)
While still pursuing my BSEE degree, I worked at Texas Instruments, Inc, in the Failure Analysis Laboratory.  In this position I disassembled semiconductor integrated circuits to determine the cause of failure.  I spent considerable time running the Transmission Electron Microscope in the TI Lab.  This is very time consuming because every sample you wish to look at must be manually ground down to a thickness no greater than a human hair.

(1998 - 1999)
After graduating with my BSEE degree, I accepted a full-time position at Texas Instruments as a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Applications Engineer.  In this position, I designed printed circuit boards that would test the functionality of TI's flagship line of DSP chips that are used in cell phones, GPS receivers, iPods, etc.

(1999 - 2001)
While attending graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin, my research was in applied Plasma Propulsion for deep space applications.  My research was sponsored by the Fusion Research Center at the University of Texas and also the Advanced Space Propulsion Laboratory (ASPL) at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.  During the summers I would travel to ASPL to perform experiments on the prototype deep space plasma rocket being assembled in Houston.  Specifically, my research involved understanding the power efficiency in the prototype plasma rocket.  In other words, if you put 100kW of power into the rocket, how much power comes out as usable thrust?

(2001 - present)
In 2001 I graduated with my MSEE degree and accepted a full-time position at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.  In this position I began training to be a Flight Controller for the Space Shuttle in the Misson Control Center.  Also in 2001 I began pursuing my MS in Physics on a part-time basis which I completed in 2005.  As of 2008, I am a fully certified space shuttle flight controller and I am one of a small cadre of individuals that is in charge of the orbiter's flight computer systems, onboard software, and flight critical avionics during missions.  I work console shifts during the Ascent, Orbit, and Entry timeframes, and have been priviledged to work numerous space shuttle flights over the years.
