Expedition Role: Field Assistant, Logistics, Diving Team
Affiliation: SETI Institute/NASA Ames Research Center

I was first invited to participate in the High Lakes expeditions in 2003 while at NASA Ames Research Center developing computer vision algorithms and software for robotic Mars exploration. I have participated every year since then and am thrilled to be involved in this exciting work. My academic background in physics and electrical engineering, combined with my mountaineering and diving experience has enabled me to contribute to many aspects of the expedition.

My responsibilities this year include diving, planning of diving activities, mountain safety, and assisting with scientific experiments, power and communications, and logistics.
