Dr. Christianna Taylor started Intelligent Space in 2016 after attending Singularity University as a Global Impact Challenge winner. Her work in AI started in graduate school at the Georgia Institute of Technology where she gained her PhD in Aerospace Engineering for her work on higher fidelity for technology portfolio development.  During this time, she also went to the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) where she served as the crew engineer. Currently she works with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Space Special Interest Group where she hopes to bring a NSBE crew back to the MDRS habitat in the year 2020.

When she’s not working at the intersection of space and AI, she enjoys traveling, reading, and finding interesting challenges.  Her earliest memory of space is that of watching Haley’s comet with her Mom; her latest is probably watching Star Trek and analyzing the science behind it while researching is that possible.
