Experience

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
June 2015 - August 2015

I had the pleasure of working with a team of five students to design and prototype interactive data visualization tools for three research groups at JPL and Caltech. Science stuff! 

1) Help Mars Rover drivers quickly find the safest and most cost effective drive path for the rover by giving them an intuitive path planning tool that displays their data in a visual way; so that they can more efficiently use the mission's valuable time and resources.

2) Create a visual catalog of all objects in extragalactic space that allows astronomers to discover connections between objects’ characteristics and their physical locations so that they can better understand the underlying structures of the universe. 

3) Provide cell biologists with a tool that clearly displays the many types of data they collect so that they can understand the complexities of cell division and relationships between genes that may be causing disease.
