About The Author

I enjoy working on new challenges and applying my professional expertise across a broad range of disciplines. In my graduate student years I enjoyed working in Information Technology consulting solving disparate problems in both industry and academia. At Princeton University I worked at the interface between high performance computing, Information Technology and the Astrophysical Sciences. In the past 15 years I have worked inside of NASA as a Cosmologist, Planetary Scientist, Computer Scientist, Historian of Science and in Information Technology. Currently my focus is on the three dimensional modeling of planetary and exoplanetary atmospheres to better understand the history of terrestrial planets within our solar system and their possible connections to the exoplanetary worlds Astronomers have encountered through their observations. At the same time my Information Technology experience continues to be put to use on a daily basis to meet the IT security requirements of the US Federal Government and NASA while balancing my local organization's needs.
