Exploring the Boundaries Between Science and Engineering at LASP: A View from a Scientist Who Still Likes to Make Things

Location:LASP Space Sciences Building (SPSC)

Seminar Abstract:

LASP is a unique research environment, where many work along the boundaries between science, engineering, satellite operations, and technology development.

As an instrument scientist at LASP, Andrew Jones gets to work on projects such as launching sounding rockets and calibrating the next-generation of instruments for the GOES satellites, to working with students on designing and building CubeSats. He also interprets scientific data from operational satellites, develops new data products, and constantly strives to understand how we can build the next generation of instruments better.

Of course, this type of work can not be achieved in isolation, and being able to leverage the resources at LASP and CU-Boulder, as well as national and international collaborations means that life is never boring. Come hear about how the cross-disciplinary work environment at LASP offers a fantastic opportunity to learn something new every day!
