 Aprille Ericsson-Jackson Biography

Aerospace engineer Aprille Ericsson-Jackson’s career is distinguished by “firsts." Ericsson-Jackson considers her most prestigious the honor of being the first person of color to receive The Washington Award from the Western Society of Engineers. She is the first African-American female to receive a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Howard University (HU) and the first African-American female to receive a Ph.D. in Engineering at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), where she currently serves as New Business lead for the Instrument Systems and Technology Division.

During her quarter-century-long tenure with NASA, Ericsson-Jackson has worked as an Aerospace Engineer, Technologist, Project and Program Manager and Executive.

During her time there, she was involved in several aerospace research projects and lead the research for Manned Mars Mission crew systems for interplanetary vehicles for her senior project.

She earned her masters and doctoral degree at Howard University, where her research focused on developing practical design procedures for future orbiting space structures, like the Space Station.

Additionally, she has traveled extensively throughout the world, presenting papers on her research in the US, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, England, South Africa, and Mexico.
