Curriculum Vitae:

Jeffrey Foster

Jeffrey Foster is a technologist working in the Icy and Ocean World Simulation Laboratory, and as an operator of a high energy electron accelerator, the Dynamitron. Jeffrey joined JPL through a summer internship back in 2012 and has continued on as an employee. He is a member of the team working on the Europa Penitent Ice eXperiments (EPIX), playing a role from concept design, assembly, operation, and data analysis. His work with the Dynamitron involves simulating space radiation effects on flight hardware.


Education
