Matt is responsible for the project management and technical management of the Regolith Excavation Challenge and Moon Regolith Oxygen (MoonROx) Challenge; prize competitions being executed under the NASA Centennial Challenges Program. These challenges are intended to accelerate technology development in the area of in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) for lunar missions and to develop a community around lunar ISRU, providing an avenue by which members of the public can contribute to the advancement of ISRU technologies. As the staff liaison to the New Space Professionals Working Group, Matt is engaged with the issues raised by the recruiting, integration, and retention of new space professionals into the space enterprise workforce. The working group seeks to give CSA members and other space community stakeholders insight into the perspectives of new space professionals and the various challenges resulting from the unique history of space enterprise
