Hi I’m Geoffrey Jones, graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) with a BS in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering and Senior Research Specialist at RPI’s Lighting Research Center (LRC).
At the LRC I managed several projects including the planning and development of a new prototype wireless light and activity sensor. Additionally, I oversaw the creation of a more robust user friendly software client for the current model light and activity tracker.
While pursuing my degree at RPI, in aeronautical and mechanical engineering, I participated in a multitude of projects, including two sponsored by NASA and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. For one project I performed detailed release and orbital analysis of CubeSats from the International Space Station. As part of the second project I lead a group to analyze simulation results to select suitable navigation and sensing components for a nanosatellite.
