Exploring The Boundaries Between Science And Engineering

January 22, 2015 – On February 4, Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) instrument scientist Andrew Jones will give a free public lecture entitled, “Exploring the boundaries between science and engineering at LASP.” LASP is a unique research environment, where many people work along the boundaries between science, engineering, satellite operations, and technology development.

As an instrument scientist at LASP, Jones gets to work on projects such as launching sounding rockets and calibrating the next-generation of instruments for the GOES satellites, to working with students on designing and building CubeSats. He also interprets scientific data from operational satellites, develops new data products, and constantly strives to understand how we can build the next generation of instruments better.

At this public lecture, Jones will speak about his experience at part of the LASP/CU-Boulder community and the opportunity for cross-disciplinary work, as well as national and international collaborations.

The event will be held at LASP Space Sciences Building Rm. W120, 3665 Discovery Drive, Boulder, CO. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the talk begins at 7:30.
