Riley Avron

Riley Avron has spent the past three summers interning at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, working on the Curiosity rover as it was prepared for its mission to Mars. Most recently, he developed software to allow the Earth-bound copy of Curiosity to be maneuvered using an iPhone to make testing easier and more efficient. His work at JPL has only served to strengthen his interest in space exploration and associated technology and he will be returning to JPL during the upcoming summer.
