Dr. Aprille Ericsson is an aerospace engineer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

Throughout her thirty-plus year career with NASA, Dr. Ericsson has worked as an aerospace engineer, technologist, project and program manager and executive. She has made many notable contributions, including as the project manager for the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter that has been orbiting the Moon since 2009, and the ICESat-2 Atlas (Ice, Cloud, & Land Elevation Satellite) that provides measurements over the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica to quantify changes in ice-sheet mass that impact global sea level.

Dr. Ericsson has taught at both Howard University, University of Maryland, and Bowie State University. She has been recognized as one of the Top 50 Minority Women in Science and Engineering by the National Technical Association and has received the NASA Goddard Honor Award for Excellence in Outreach; the Washington Award for engineering achievements that advance the welfare of mankind; and a Science Trailblazers award from the Black Engineers of the Year Award Conference.
