Julie is a research scientist at Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley, collaborating with the science teams of small body mission concepts currently under development at NASA Ames. She is the first international JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow to have stayed at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) working with the JAXA Space Exploration Center on the Hayabusa follow-on missions.
She obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Michigan, studying the dynamics of binary asteroid systems and spacecraft applications. Throughout her time at Michigan, she was also involved in a variety of projects with the Student Space Systems Fabrication Lab (S3FL). This included the MClimber team, which competed in the 2006 NASA Centennial Challenge Elevator 2010. In her free time, she enjoys competitive cycling and flying over the Bay area.
