Janelle Wellons | Instrument Operations Engineer

the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an instrument operations engineer. She has won various team and individual awards in her time there, including the JPL Bruce Murray Award for “inspiring students to engage in STEM, quenching their thirst for knowledge, and sparking a curiosity greater than the stars in the sky”. Her job consists of planning, generating, and validating the commands to operate scientific instruments in-flight, as well as monitoring their health and safety. She also works to develop instrument ground data systems and concepts to be used in operations. She has worked on missions at Saturn, the Moon, and our own planet Earth. Additionally, she serves as the President of the Black Excellence Strategic Team, one of JPL’s Employee Resource Groups. When she isn’t working, you can find her scuba diving, traveling, playing video games, cosplaying, enjoying the outdoors, and doing outreach for communities traditionally underrepresented in STEM.
