Lanham, MD 20706.
Born in Mexico City. Received Bachelors in Science degrees in Physics
and in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin, and Masters
in Science and Doctorate in Physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Doctoral thesis was on the effect of equilibrium flow for heating of laboratory
and space plasmas. In 1990 joined Hughes STX Corporation to work at Goddard
Space Flight Center on magnetospheric physics.
From 1992 to 2000, headed the Science Planning and Operations Facility
for the International Solar-Terrestrial Physics program, and was a member
of the GSFC Magnetospheric Modeling Group. Under Hughes STX (later changed
to Raytheon STX and Raytheon ITSS), served as Head of the Space Physics
and Multidisciplinary Science Group, Manager of the Extraterrestrial Science
Department, and finally Deputy Program Manager for Space Science, all supporting
space science efforts at Goddard Space Flight Center.
In 2000 joined Science Systems and Applications, Inc. as Deputy Program
Manager for the Space and Earth Sciences Data Analysis contract, leading
over 330 professionals providing space and Earth sciences, engineering
and IT services to GSFC.
