About

I hold a bachelors and a masters degree in Space Science from York University, Toronto. I worked in the atomic and laser physics group at YorkU, which designed and developed a patent-pending technology for an auto-locked diode laser system for high precision metrology. I was responsible for the development of current and temperature controllers for diodes and was involved in characterizing the lasers. I joined the Laboratory for Atmospheric Remote Sounding from Space (LARSS, YorkU) in 2015, where I worked on several grating spectrometers and payload support systems for a Stratospheric balloon flight in Timmins, ON. This was a joint endeavor of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the French Space Agency (CNES). I was also involved in the high Arctic ground validation campaign of the MAESTRO instrument on-board SCISAT satellite. I also worked on developing technical baselines, and prototype imaging Fourier transform technology for the highly elliptical Atmospheric Imaging Mission (AIM-North mission), which is currently undergoing Phase 0 studies by the CSA and ABB Inc. of Quebec City. I worked at Telops of Quebec City, in the infrared cameras and hyperspectral imagers R&D teams. I recently joined L3Harris Wescam of Burlington, Ontario as a Manufacturing engineering specialist in the Optics Operations team. I am responsible for ensuring WESCAM's new product is manufacturable and has robust processes through the production lifecycle. In addition, I research on outer Space Sustainability with professor Steven Young of the School of Environment Enterprise and Development, University of Waterloo.
