Meet the panelists:

Adrian Arteaga Garcia is a Systems Engineer within the Payload Systems Engineering Group at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). He currently serves as the Instrument Engineer for SUDA, a time-of-flight mass spectrometer that will fly on the Europa Clipper spacecraft to help characterize the composition of particles captured in the exosphere of Europa. The Europa Clipper mission will help determine whether Europa, the second of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter, is a habitable world. Adrian has previous professional experience working with the REASON (radar) and PIMS (plasma sounder) instruments, also part of the Europa Clipper Payload. He has a MEng in Space Engineering (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) and a BA in Physics & Astrophysics (Harvard).

Hayden Burgoyne is a Systems Engineer at NASA JPL. He is the Europa Clipper Deputy Phase Lead for the Science Tour and the Project Systems Engineering Analysis Lead. Before JPL, he was the first employee and VP of Spacecraft Systems at Analytical Space, a Harvard start-up building 6U cubesats for commercial data relay from space. He has a BS in Engineering Sciences (Harvard) and a MS & PhD in Space Engineering (Caltech).

Matthew Smith is a spacecraft Systems Engineer at NASA JPL. He is currently a Flight Director on the Mars 2020 Perseverance Mission, which is midway through a seven-month cruise to Mars that culminates in landing on the red planet in February 2021. Previously, he served as the Project System Engineer and Mission Manager for the ASTERIA space telescope. His research interests are in systems engineering for space-based optical instruments, exoplanets, modeling and simulation, and multi-disciplinary design optimization. He holds a BA in Applied Mathematics (Harvard), a M.Phil in Engineering (University of Cambridge, UK), and a MS and PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics (MIT).

Stephanie Smith is a Digital & Social Media Supervisor at NASA JPL. When she’s not channeling her inner robot tweeting as the Curiosity Mars rover, Smith oversees the social media team at NASA JPL, which holds conversations with the public and media about more than 20 space missions. A two-time Emmy winner for original interactive programming, and seven-time Webby Award winner, she was also recognized by Time for running one of the “140 Best Twitter Feeds.” A veteran of the “Let’s Go” travel guides, Idealab and Peabody-award winning “Channel One News,” Smith is always game for the adventures that make great stories. She holds an AB in history (Harvard) and mixes a mean #Marstini.
