Space Policy and Research Center (SPARC)

Co-Founding Director, 2017-Present


SPARC has just launched at the University of Washington, Seattle. With an eye on the global context, SPARC aims to draw on the competences of the College of Engineering and the College of Arts & Sciences to advance the next-generation space workforce and to create a UW-centered platform for education, research, and policy outreach. To more holistically serve the UW faculty and the student body, it brings together and simultaneously elevates both the Law & Policy and STEM aspects of outer space affairs.
