In 2016, at The Ohio State University, Staats co-organized and -lead a prototypal workshop for the application of evolutionary computation to astroparticle physics (CHEAPR). Since 2017, he is assisting Professor Amy Connolly and her colleagues at OSU and Cal Poly with a student project to develop evolutionary algorithms that evolve antenna designs for improved neutrino detection.
Staats is Principal Manager and Producer at Over the Sun, LLC, where the focus is science outreach and education. His last film series, funded in part by the NSF, chronicled the first direct detection of gravitational waves in 2015 by LIGO, at which he is a Visiting Scientist.
Produced in 2015-16, I am Palestine is a short documentary that shares the stories of Palestinians who once lived side-by-side with Israeli neighbors in what is now a place with an uncertain, conflicted future. The film enjoyed screening at eight film festivals, winning awards at the NYC Indie Film Awards, Best Shorts Competition, and Best Short Documentary at the 2016 Cabo Verde International Film Festival.
In 2013, Staats filmed and produced Chasing Asteroid 1998 QE2 for the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO), documenting their observations of this near-Earth interloper. In 2017, Staats returned to SAAO, producing a short film about the first detection of merging binary neutron stars as a fully multi-messenger event.
In the fall of 2013 he was awarded his first contract with LIGO, the gravitational-wave observatory. LIGO, A Passion for Understanding is a 20-minute documentary film completed in April 2014. Subsequent NSF and university funding was provided for LIGO Generations in 2015, and LIGO Detection in 2017. LIGO Detection is distributed by the National Science Foundation’s educational content library Science360, and related films are available at the LIGO multimedia archive.
From 2012-14 he produced Monitor Gray, a short science fiction film based on three short stories he wrote in high school and college.
Staats engaged in filmmaking at an early age. His first production, in 6th grade, was a LEGO-mation shot on 8mm film. He made the move to digital film during collaboration with brother Jae Staats, co-founder of the Almost Famous Film Festival (A3F) which ran from 2005-2010. His work in independent and later professional filmmaking began in 2011 at Holden Village, an isolated retreat center in the Washington Cascades.
In 1999 Staats co-founded, and for ten years served as CEO of, Terra Soft Solutions, Inc. (TSS). TSS developed a Linux operating system (OS) for the POWER architecture with support for embedded, desktop, and server chipsets by IBM and Freescale, and computer products by Apple, IBM, Sony, and others. Terra Soft delivered the desktop OS Yellow Dog Linux and turn-key high performance computing (HPC) solutions for DoE, DoD, NASA, and higher education customers. In 2008 Terra Soft was acquired by the Japanese company Fixstars and was renamed to Fixstars Solutions. Staats became the COO.
In 1995 he founded Terra Firma Design (TFD) and continued as its sole proprietor until 2000. TFD provided website development and marketing consulting principally for companies located in Northern Colorado, including a corporate identity package for Western Telecommunications, Inc. (WTCI), website design and maintenance for New Belgium Brewing Company, and the re-design of the RB5X, an educational and hobbyist robot then produced by General Robotics Corporation.
