Previous project participation - COBE, Chandra, SWIFT, HST, DEEP IMPACT

COBE : Cryogenic infrared bolometer development for the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite, testing and integration of the Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment (DIRBE) into COBE, and computer modeling of the DIRBE instrumentation; launch support, mission ops, and initial data analysis and checking during the  10 month sky survey mission; scientific analysis and production of a dissertation on the cometary dust observed by COBE/DIRBE.

HST: Design, development, and testing of the pan-chromatic last generation WFC3 camera to be loaded on board HST during the SM4 final servicing mission.

Deep Impact - Member of the science team. Responsibilities included writing of the initial DIscovery proposal; scientific trade studies, including modeling the expected impactor targeting sensitivity requirements, given a nucleus of unknown size embedded in a bright dust/gas coma; estimating the dust impact hazard for the impactor and flyby spacecraft, allowing design and implementation of the spacecraft ACS and protective "Whipple" dust shield; comparison of the comet nucleus and coma properties to those of other comets; instrument design, testing, and integration; launch support; in-flight data analysis and mission ops planning; deputy lead for world-wide remote observing campaign of the encounter; PI of the Spitzer and Chandra observing campaigns of the encounter.
