Professional Experience:

Software Engineer, March 2013-Present: Harris Corporation

  • Supported the DEX system as implemented in the FAA NEMS (NAS Enterprise Messaging System) program.  Worked remotely from company and software team, acting as a liaison between customers and company as it related to software integration and testing of several FAA related programs into NEMS.  Worked directly with customers, assisting with test procedures and test plans.  Worked with other FTI departments, giving integration support and organized parties to resolve issues.  Assisted with system and user documentation.

Computer Scientist, August 2008-March 2013: Engility Corporation

  • Support the contract to the Research Development and Human Factors Laboratory @FAA
  • Worked on the Distributed Environment for Simulation, Rapid Engineering and Experimentation Architecture (DESIREE) system that supports integration with 3rd party software and models the software environment of legacy and NextGen Air Traffic Control technologies integration such as Enroute, Tracon, DSR, ERAM, STARS, FTWS, AirWolf, and DataComm, etc.  The system is a distributed process, real-time air traffic control simulator.
  • Developed for and gave support to over 10 simulation experiments (most of which were ERAM based) and rapid prototyping demos using DESIREE modelling and simulation software.
  • Assisted in integrating EES (ERAM Evaluation System) into DESIREE.
  • Developed software for gui interfaces, back-end improvements, and system improvements.
  • Integrated new hardware interfaces that were used for recording and data analyis
  • Completed or led some system administration improvements for the system and development group.
  • Always looked for ways to increase productivity, for example introduced distcc and ccache which reduced full compile time from 50 min to 10 min; encouraged group to use instant messaging; co-developed a backup strategy that gave 4 instances of recovery per day.
  • Contributed to the documentation of system and software requirements and dependencies
  • Gave talk on Git revision control system after transition.
