After graduating from Cornell ECE, I joined Eastman Kodak's Image Science and Career Development program. During that two year rotational program, I worked on OLED display technology as well as digital radiography projects.
When I left Rochester, NY, I joined the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, where I continue to work today. I have spent seven years working on the FAA's Traffic-Alert and Collision Avoidance System which flies on all aircraft in the U.S. with 29 or more passengers. We are currently involved in creating the next-generation system known as ACAS X which should begin flying on manned as well as unmanned aircraft gradually over the next five-to-ten years.
My education at Cornell allowed me to be involved in all aspects of the system design, from real-time software development used during flight test, modeling and simulation, software tool development, and project management.
