I'm working on the HETE-2 (High-Energy Transient Experiment) program. Our satellite was launched from Kwajalein Oct.2000 and is now in low earth orbit. I built one of the main instruments on-board, a soft X-ray Camera that can localize flashes of x-rays to within a few tens of arcseconds over a 90 degree x 90 degree swath of sky.

My resume is also available for additional personal info.
