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. Emily completed one master's degree in Atmospheric and Space Science and a second in Space Engineering, both at the University of Michigan. Emily is currently an Aerospace Engineer in the Space Mission Analysis Branch at the NASA Langley Research Center where she works on analyses for human and robotic space missions and cost estimate modeling.
In her spare time, Emily keeps active with NASA Langley IM sports teams and community orchestras. She is also active with several non-profits and mentoring programs, where she is passionate about encouraging young students to follow their dreams in the space industry.
