I am a geologist with 30 years experience in consulting, research and education. I am currently on the faculty in the Math/Science Dept of Harper College as a non-tenured instructor. I have been involved in meteorite analysis and classification (using the electron-probe micro-analyzer at the University of Illinois-Chicago) for the Planetary Studies Foundation. In addition, I hold a position as a Staff Geologist/Planetarium Operator for the Cernan Earth and Space Center, Triton College. Prior to that, I was a Staff Scientist for Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) where I participated in advanced planetary mission concept analyses under various NASA contracts.
