Ryan Terrien, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy, has been awarded a contract with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) on the NASA-funded NEID spectrometer Guaranteed Time Observations (GTO) Survey program. Prof. Terrien will support the execution and analysis of the instrument precision and performance – in particular, the wavelength calibration methods – in order to optimize the GTO survey sensitivity. Additionally, he will develop NEID GTO-based projects for, and mentor, research students.
