Profiles of 10 Women Rocket Sciencetists: Camille Wardrop Alleyne 

Currently one of the most-recognized women in aerospace engineering, Camille works for the North American Space Agency (NASA) at its Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. She is the Assistant Program Scientist for the International Space Station (ISS), leading an international task force in educational and public outreach campaigns for the station as well as to attract more young people into the sciences. She has worked on other projects as an engineer, including NASA’s Orion project to design the next-generation of space craft. She was also an environmental control tester for the space shuttle program at NASA in the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Camille Wardrop Alleyne was born in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. She was encouraged by her parents to take things apart and rebuild them as a child, learning engineering by doing. She stargazed and was interested in space early on as well. After primary school and early college in Trinidad, she then came to the U.S. to attend Howard University, then Florida A&M, and finally the University of Maryland where she received successive degrees in Mechanical Engineering, specialized in Composite Materials, and in Aerospace Engineering with specialization in Hypersonic Aerodynamics and Propulsion.
