Yuri’s Night, Global/Online
Chairman of the Board of Directors & President [Jul 2010 - Current]
501(c)3 Non-Profit Company Yuri's Night (YN) is an annual global celebration for human spaceflight held every April 12th. Tasks include leading the Global Executive Team (~30+ members/year with ~8 active core members) and Board of Directors with project management, partnership development, use of online tools, organizational skills, and volunteer team motivation. In my first year as Executive Director [2010-2011], our team broke records with over 600 events in 75 countries reaching over 100,000 people on the 50th Anniversary of Human Spaceflight and won the NewSpace Award for the Best Presentation of Space from the Space Frontier Foundation [2011]. As President and Chairman of the Board of Directors [since 2010], I led the team to obtain our 501(c)3 Non-Profit status [2010] and formed new Memoranda of Understandings with over twenty space education and outreach partners. Obtaining 501(c)3 status allowed YN to spin-off from its forming body, Space Generation Advisory Council (observer organization to United Nations COPUOS), which led to the UN declaration of April 12th as the "International Day of Human Space Flight" [2011]. Program highlights include: 2011 coordinated with ISS Program to send 6 YN shirts to ISS for 50th Anniversary; 2012 GetCurious campaign with NASA JPL reaching over 25,400 people at 60 recognized events for the Mars Curiosity Rover landing; 2013 partnering with Canadian Space Agency for live YN Tweetup to Commander Hadfield on ISS; 2015 New Horizons YN Google Hangout; 2016 Disney Junior's Miles from Tomorrowland activities and #BeAnAstronaut commemorative patch project; and more than 4 million people reached since 2001.

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE
Space Florida, Exploration Park, FL
Project Manager for Research and Development [Sept 2012 - Aug 2016]
Focused on Florida research and development efforts including designing statewide business plan and research competitions as well as education programs to catalyze technology development in small satellites, digital manufacturing, and 3D printing. Assisting in developing federal proposal opportunities for Space Florida and potential partners from the academic and business sectors. Programs that I managed included:
·       Florida Space Research Program ($300,000 of grants with matching funds for ~15 projects/year at Florida universities) and Florida Space Internship Program at the Space Life Sciences Lab (13 interns in 4 years) both partnered with the NASA Florida Space Grant Consortium. My research into the Florida economic impact, and proposals to management, saved these programs from being cancelled and facilitated growth including additional grants for NASA Technology Transfer projects and payloads (NanoRacks to the ISS and suborbital with Blue Origin).
·       International Space Station Research Competition. 7 uniquely different payloads flew to the ISS on NASA-SpaceX CRS-3, 4, 5, and 8 missions in partnership with NanoRacks, a $300,000 program. I acted as the customer interface for the payloads and helped NanoRacks develop their Florida launch operations for payload investigators.
·       I led the design and development for Space Florida headquarters in Exploration Park ("Building A"). I provided space exploration research to the architects for interior and external design, such as a launch viewing rooftop patio, and I designed the Space Florida tenant space to include collaboration zones.
·       Led Atlantis Rollover Event through Exploration Park [2 Nov 2012].
·       Planetary Lander Egg-Drop Competition. I helped double the competition to 55 K-12 competitors in 2015 with new resources for teachers. I led the transition of the event to new management in 2016 (The Astronauts Memorial Foundation and the Florida Afterschool Network) to assist the event growth and creation of additional STEM/STEAM opportunities for students in Florida.

My collaborative efforts with the Kennedy Space Center and community as a representative of Space Florida have included:
·       Mining Judge: NASA's Robotic Mining Challenge [2013-2016].
·       Challenge Author: NASA's International Space Apps Challenge ["Fit as a MOoSE" 2015, "Book it to the Moon" 2016]. "Book it to the Moon" had the largest pool of solutions with 101 from 63 locations in 2016 and included one of the six global winners.
·       Judge: Freedom 7 Elementary School of International Studies Science Fair [2016].
·       Speaker: university guest lectures, conferences, workshops, and Gr. 5-6 career days.

Daily roles included technical and business interactions, managing the progress and completion of assigned projects, developing schedules, monitoring and summarizing project status, budget tracking, keeping current on the commercial spaceflight industry, and business development prospect identification and qualification (technical advisor on investments).

Florida Institute of Technology, Spaceport Site, Kennedy Space Center, FL

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA
Postdoctoral Associate [Nov 2010 – Aug 2012]
Supporting hands-on technical project research in the Man-Vehicle Laboratory for Prof. Dava Newman relating to human exploration including: suborbital and commercial research assessment for human spaceflight; inertial measurement unit (IMU) use on medical applications, spacesuit testing and astronaut surface mobility; and supported graduate student research.
I created hands-on research projects to validate new IMU devices. My first investigation used the IMUs in cars, which may have oscillations analogous to the vibrations a passenger may experience in spaceflight. The knowledge gained about device sensitivity led to my idea to use the IMUs inside of a spacesuit to investigate the spacesuit work envelope via joint angles. I designed a pressurized suit elbow flexion and extension test using David Clark Company's Contingency Hypobaric Astronaut Protective Suit (CHAPS). The results showed how the body moves differentially from the spacesuit, which can calculate energy losses and indicate potential risks of injuries in training and operations (IAC 2012 paper). The results have been used to help optimize the CHAPS for better fit, which will lead to safer and more efficient contingency emergency operations and exploration.
I worked with Prof. Jeffrey Hoffman and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on a NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts funded study titled: Spacecraft/Rover Hybrids for the Exploration of Small Solar System Bodies (NASA 11-11 NIAC-0648). My research roles included communication link budget analysis, concept of operations, and dust considerations for surface science (a personal study was conducted to investigate dust interacting instruments for low-gravity environments, ICES 2014 paper).
Supported projects included: a surface exploration traverse analysis and navigation tool (Gilkey ICES 2011 paper); robotic joint torque testing for pressure suit mobility (Meyen ICES 2011 paper); and, my expertise on form and function of spacesuit mobility aided in a winning proposal to the NASA Human Research Program for the "Spacesuit Trauma Countermeasure System for Intravehicular and Extravehicular Activities" (NNX12AC09G) project.
I was the Event Director for MIT's 150th Anniversary Exploration Symposium titled: Earth, Air, Ocean and Space: The Future of Exploration, which featured prominent explorers, historians and astronaut alums (25-27 April 2011). I developed our program, organized the Vehicle Expo, managed 30 speakers, and I participated as a panel moderator. The conference had approximately 800 attendees and averaged 600 unique viewers during the two-day webcast.
Co-Teaching Assistant: Space Biomedical and Life Support Engineering (Spring 2011).
Brief work, which was important for personal knowledge growth, was conducted with Maria Zuber in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences looking at thermal inertia lunar data for potential landing sites.

The University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO, USA
Ph.D. Dissertation Title: Characterization and Measurement Standardization of Lunar Dust Abrasion for Spacecraft Design and Operations (2010).

Research Assistant - NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program (GSRP NNX07AR55H) [Sept 2007 - Aug 2010]
I was awarded a NASA GSRP Fellowship to conduct lunar dust characterization with the Dust Management Program at NASA Glenn Research Center, focused on dust abrasion.
During the Apollo missions, astronauts exploring the Moon experienced numerous unexpected material wear issues that were attributed to the presence of fine-grained, jagged, irregularly shaped lunar dust particles. My PhD research examined these issues and systematically developed measurement techniques and new metrics to look at abraded surfaces from two-body abrasion scratch testing. These metrics characterize the entire volume of a scratch profile and offer detailed information, which upgrade the current ASTM standard that only looks at scratch width (communications are ongoing with ASTM's Subcommittee G02.30 on Abrasive Wear). Custom scratch tips were fabricated from Earth minerals analogous to lunar mineralogy (ex. olivine, enstatite, spinel) to investigate how different zones on the Moon may result in different levels of abrasion. Bulk three-body abrasion tests were conducted to compare lunar dust simulants (Highlands and Mare types) in an actual operational environment. An abrasion index was designed to quantify the overall abrasion level and thereby help improve the performance and reliability of exploration systems in the following areas: abrasive risk identification; specific mitigation strategies; mission design, such as landing location or field operations; hardware design; testing protocols in the laboratory; and material selection for surface systems. These results will be useful for any mission (robotic or humans) that intend to have a sustained presence on the surface of the Moon or other low gravity environments. Ongoing work is expected with academic, Kennedy Space Center, and industrial partners.
Two 10-week academic visits were conducted in the summers of 2008 and 2009 at NASA Glenn Research Center. Equipment used included a scratch tester, Veeco surface optical profilometer, and Rockwell hardness tester. I developed custom Matlab code to analyze the 3D surface data.

Space Analogue Simulations with The Mars Society
Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station (FMARS), Devon Island, Nunavut, Canada
Human Factors Research Lead & Crew Engineer, Crew 11 - FMARS Crew 11 Long Duration Mission (F-XI LDM), 100-day Mars simulation [May-Aug 2007]
I was competitively selected to be part of a 7-person crew for an all-volunteer effort to simulate a long duration Mars mission in the remote and isolated Canadian High Arctic. The mission included two-weeks of training at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), Hanksville, UT. The FMARS mission lasted 100- operational-days and included twenty-two science experiments spanning biology, geology, chemistry, human factors, radiation, and engineering. This mission provided a rare chance to analyze the physical environmental and microbiological responses to seasonal transitions. Principle Investigators from NASA, CSA, ESA, and academia supported the projects 'from Earth' using 20-minute time delay protocols. Constraints were imposed on the crew to increase the fidelity of the simulation including wearing bulky surface suits for Extravehicular Activities (EVAs) to mock the mobility and dexterity issues associated with differential pressure environments.
As the Human Factors Researcher and coordinator, I was tasked with forming a schedule and motivating the crew to complete studies in order to obtain the most consistent testing conditions (time of day and workload). I collected data for the five core experiments, including a sleep study (C.A.S.P.E.R.), cognitive tests (WinSCAT), group dynamic questionnaires, habitability study, and an exercise study. The unique 24- hour-sunlit environment of the Arctic led to two more projects beings added including a Mars Time study and a Food Preferences study (which led to the creation of the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, HI-SEAS, missions). For more than a month, the crew operated on the Martian 'sol' to investigate effects on crew psychophysiology and mission operations.
As a crew engineer, I focused on repair of the EVA equipment, assisting in habitat systems maintenance, and polar bear monitor (PBM) activities. During the 100-day simulation I participated in 46 of 88 EVAs (12 were as PBM) totaling 148 hours of field exploration analogue experience (including four two-week MDRS rotations in 2004/2006/2007/2007, I have been on 76 EVAs with a total duration of 212.5 hours).
