Profile Summary

Jeremy Murray-Krezan obtained his PhD in Physics in 2007 from the University of Virginia. Dr. Murray-Krezan has worked for both the Navy and Air Force as a research physicist, program manager, and most recently Assistant Chief Scientist for Directed Energy at the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL).
Dr. Murray-Krezan’s research career includes investigations into the experimental methods and applications of innovative infrared and optical remote sensing techniques, such as multi- and hyper-spectral sensing. Starting in 2007, while at the Naval Research Lab (NRL), he led efforts to design, fabricate, and demonstrate hyperspectral systems. His work resulted in several publications, including one that was highlighted on the cover of the Applied Optics (Mar 2010). Additionally for his work at NRL, he was awarded a patent and NRL’s 2008 Research Publication Award.
AFRL hired Jeremy Murray-Krezan away from NRL in 2010. His research into innovative remote sensing methods continued with a new emphasis on space situational awareness, such as the imaging of satellites near the geostationary (GEO-belt) orbits and multispectral techniques to infer satellite function. Dr. Murray-Krezan has published the most precise estimates of several characteristics of the GEO-belt debris population. Another research thrust has been to archive and disseminate unique datasets for the purposes of space situational awareness research, where he collaborates extensively with industry, academia, and internationally. He was awarded AFRL’s 2011 Junior Scientific Achievement Award for space research in addition to international and technology transition awards. In 2015, with a significant change in the U.S.’s space control policy, Jeremy Murray-Krezan played a key role for the Air Force Research Lab as the overall lead of the Space Command and Control Section. He recently joined the SPIE Policy Committee where he seeks to frame policy on optics and photonics.
