“His day-to-day work includes design, analysis and build of structural, thermal, hydraulic and vacuum systems used to test all parts of the satellite and associated ground systems. Over his 10-year career, he has worked in a variety of mechanical engineering fields including systems engineering for the Department of Defense, software development, commercial space, commercial aerospace and nuclear energy. Brian has been employed as both a contractor and full-time employee and is now the lead of a team of test engineers at SpaceX. He holds a B.S.M.E. in from Colorado State, an M.S.M.E. from Georgia Tech and is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Washington.”
