Emily Judd discovered the wonders of space exploration upon witnessing her first rocket launch. This led to majoring in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Central Florida and participating in rocketry competitions. Conducting research on several aerospace structures and materials projects inspired Emily to pursue graduate studies. Having completed one master's degree in Atmospheric and Space Science, she is currently working toward her second master's degree in Space Engineering at the University of Michigan. Emily is also a Pathways intern at NASA Langley Research Center.
In her spare time, Emily keeps involved with engineering and space student organizations and campus orchestras. Outside of school, she is active with several non-profits and mentoring programs, where she is passionate about encouraging young students to follow their dreams in the space industry.
