Adam Carlson has a degree in aerospace engineering, and is currently a Lead Engineer with GE Aviation. Throughout his career, he has worked on everything from wind tunnel models to parts for some of the most sophisticated jet engines in the world. At home he has his own workshop including tools to make both mechanical and electronic projects. Seeing a need to increase the capabilities of his mechanical design, he embarked on a path to learn digital electronics. It has been five years so far, and it has been a wonderful adventure. After a handful of smaller projects controlling motors and lights, Adam's current projects include stability augmentation for underwater autonomous vehicles and radio receivers for RC submarines. He has a love of learning, and probably spends more now on textbooks than he did while in school.
