Speaker: Jeff Pedelty, NASA
Subject: Jeff will share his diverse experiences while working for NASA and its industrial partners.

Jeff earned a B.S. in physics from the Iowa State University in 1981 and a Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Minnesota in 1988. His thesis combined observational radio astronomy with Professor Rudnick and computational fluid dynamics with Professor Woodward. Since leaving Minnesota he has worked for NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. He supported the Nobel-winning Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE), the Earth science missions Landsat 7, 8, and 9, and the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS-1) weather satellite. He also worked in the areas of high performance computing, signal and image processing, astrobiology, and remote sensing science. For the past 10 years he has worked for the Landsat Project onsite at Ball Aerospace in Boulder, CO and at Orbital ATK in Gilbert, AZ.
