Dr. Forrest Meyen is an American engineer, entrepreneur, and inventor. He is a senior member of the technical staff at Draper and a member of the NASA Mars Oxygen ISRU Experiment science team. At Draper, his current work involves systems analysis for Sierra Nevada's Dream Chaser, engineering support for DARPA's Fast Light Weight Autonomy program, and business development for Draper's Sembler start-up office. Forrest earned a Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, developing technologies to enable an enduring human presence beyond the planet Earth. The topic of his PhD thesis is the process monitoring and control of the Mars Oxygen ISRU Experiment (MOXIE), a payload that will eventually travel to Mars aboard the Mars 2020 rover. In 2013, Forrest earned his Masters of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT through the design and construction of a robotic exoskeleton to be used for space suit research and development. Prior to studying at MIT, Forrest combined his passions for engineering design and biological systems by earning bachelor's degrees in both mechanical engineering and in biological engineering from the University of Missouri.
