Instrument Scientist

As the instrument scientist, Tony was responsible for the architecture and high-level design of ATLAS. He now helps run instrument performance tests and computer models to ensure ATLAS will meet the mission’s science requirements. He has always been fascinated by maps and stories of exploration, and after getting degrees in physics and optics he started work at NASA doing research, building flight hardware and more. The biggest reward on the ICESat-2 project so far, Tony said, has been watching the hard work of team members turn presentation charts into a real working instrument.
