Recently, Farris attended the Air Force Conference, also known as AFCON, at the Pentagon where she was on the “Women in Technology” panel and spoke to the press about her work as the program manager for the Pulse/Hypoxia Observation (PHOG) team, responsible for rapidly procuring physiological monitoring sensors worn by ejection seat aircrew.

Specifically, she discussed her day-to-day job and talked about the PHOG team’s acquisition and tests of the SPYDR device, which is designed to alert aircrews of low oxygen in their bloodstream and allow them to take actions to prevent physiological symptoms in flight.

Farris also talked about the importance of science, technology, engineering and math and empowering young girls to become involved in STEM career fields.

During the conference, Farris sat down for a one-on-one lunch with a reporter from Buzzfeed, where she elaborated on her work with AFLCMC.

“AFCON was a great experience,” said Farris. “It brought together Airmen to discuss how we are impacting the Air Force in each of our jobs. It was an incredible opportunity to tell America about the awesome things the Air Force is doing.”
