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).
During my time working 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.
My contract with the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will be ending soon, and I am looking for a full time position that fulfills my passion for engineering and technology. My areas of interest include mechanical and systems engineering with a focus on the aerospace and defense industry.
