Associate Director, Program Manager - Systems Integration & Controls
Communication is Key
Each day brings new challenges when you're innovating. Today, I’m meeting with Pratt & Whitney Canada and Collins Aerospace to understand the best ways to bring two independent technologies - gas engines and electric motors - together to create a hybrid-electric propulsion system.
Working Smarter, Not Harder
I'm constantly challenged to eliminate barriers at the company to achieve our goals faster. Today, I'm connecting with external partners to leverage their technological advances to create efficiencies for our project.
"My role allows me to create new processes and engineering solutions rather than doing things the way they've always been done. That's innovation at its finest."
A Quick Call for Continued Success
We're paving the way for something entirely new in the aerospace industry, which means communication is a top priority to ensure we're addressing risks across multiple domains. Today's call with industry regulators will help ensure our X-plane is on track for success.
