I am a researcher, educator, and explorer.

My passion for supporting human spaceflight includes using algae for simultaneous air revitalization and thermal control in a spacecraft cabin.

From astronauts to kindergartners, I make STEM concepts easy to grasp and memorable. My passion for STEM education continues in my current role as an extravehicular (EVA) flight controller/instructor and outreach activities.

Whether flying or SCUBA diving, I love seeking out new environments and learning about different ecologies.

After taking a look around, feel free to reach out—I love quick chats about all things STEM.
