Born September 27, 1966 in Boston Massachusetts. Enjoys snow
skiing, music, astronomy, stamp collecting, and traveling.
Graduated from Taconic High School, Pittsfield,
Massachusetts, in 1984; received a bachelor of science degree in engineering science from
Harvard University in 1988, and a master of science degree in aerospace engineering from
the University of Texas, in 1992.
- American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
After graduating from Harvard in 1988, Wilson worked for 2
years for the former Martin Marietta Astronautics Group in Denver, Colorado. As a Loads
and Dynamics engineer for Titan IV, Wilson was responsible for performing coupled loads
analyses for the launch vehicle and payloads during flight events. Wilson left Martin
Marietta in 1990 to attend graduate school at the University of Texas. Her research
focused on the control and modeling of large, flexible space structures. Following the
completion of her graduate work, she began working for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, California, in 1992. As a member of the Attitude and Articulation Control
Subsystem for the Galileo spacecraft, Wilson was responsible for assessing attitude
controller performance, science platform pointing accuracy, antenna pointing accuracy and
spin rate accuracy. She worked in the areas of sequence development and testing as well.
While at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Wilson also supported the Interferometery
Technology Program as a member of the Integrated Modeling Team, which was responsible for
finite element modeling, controller design, and software development.
Selected by NASA in April 1996, Wilson reported to the
Johnson Space Center in August 1996. Having completed two years of training and
evaluation, she is qualified for flight assignment as a mission specialist. Currently,
Wilson is assigned technical duties in the Astronaut Office Payloads/Habitability Branch.
