Computer Engineer


About Me

Hello, I am Krystine Carrington. I am a Computer Engineer working for KBR at NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley. My main research interest is autonomous space-flight, and I have been fortunate enough to work on research projects in this field at both NASA Ames and Goddard Spaceflight Center. At the start of 2020 I spent time integrating a neural network pipeline with NASA's core Flight System (cFS) in support of the R-RAV autonomous rover project. Currently I am working on satellite cluster payload software in support of the Starling 1 mission.

I received both my Masters and Bachelors degrees in Computer Engineering from the University of California Santa Cruz. I additionally hold Associates degrees in both Physics and Astronomy from Saddleback College. Computer Engineering offered a unique intersection of engineering and computer science in a capacity I could easily apply to my first love: astronomy. I now mainly focus on embedded programming while touching on both higher level applications and some hardware tasks.
