    B.S. Physics, B.S. Mathematics, 2007
    Systems Analyst, Cobham, Colorado Springs, CO
    I am an operations research analyst to support the modeling and simulation of space-based infrared satellite systems and ground-based processing in the Missile Defense Space Warning Tool (MDST). My main responsibility is to analyze real world events and simulation data in which to recommend software design and implementation changes. My day to day duties include supporting MDST verification and validation analysis, providing constructive simulation design recommendations, writing analysis reports, interfacing with customers and warfighters, presenting technical briefings to stakeholders. The main skills I use everyday from my physics degree include programming scripts in Matlab, reading C++, working in Linux, presenting technical information in both reports and briefings, astrodynamics, orbital mechanics, and the list continues.

    Research Specialist, North Dakota State University-Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering, Fargo,ND
    At the Center for Nano-scale Science and Engineering I am able to work on a diverse group of projects ranging from high efficiency silicon based solar cells to organic light emitting devices. I work alongside a diverse research group that relies on one another to reach goals. The best and most rewarding part is presenting the result which allows me to travel occasionally for work.
