Marielle Pellegrino graduated with high honors in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Florida in 2015. She is currently in her first year of her doctorate program at the University of Colorado at Boulder where she studies Aerospace Engineering, specifically focused in Astrodynamics. Her research is in understanding how orbital debris (or space junk) moves in order to better track it or actually move the debris itself.
When Marielle isn’t studying how orbital debris moves, she spends her time spreading her love of science through her blog Miss Aerospace. Through her blog she shares recent news and events in space science. Her posts range from giving an intimate look at NASA through special events she has attended like State of NASA to a question and answer forum where all ages and all types of backgrounds can get quick and easy answers to their curiosities about space.
