I do enjoy tackling many types of problems. As a result, over the years, I have chosen to work in a variety of different science areas in astronomy and planetary science. As I joined larger projects, I would take on roles like Instrument Scientist, Project Scientist or Mission Scientist, as I find it rewarding and fun to move between science and engineering problems. For any new problem, I bring my toolbox of experience, often using tools I have learned from years ago.
