Bio for Dr. Jennifer Ross-Nazzal: 
Dr. Jennifer Ross-Nazzal is the NASA Human Spaceflight Historian. From 2004 to 2022, she served as the JSC Historian. Jennifer provides real-time resource and reference assistance to internal and external customers, and has shared her expertise with many NASA areas, broadcasting agencies, documentarians, and others. She was awarded her Ph.D. from Washington State University, her master’s in History from New Mexico State University, and B.A. in History and Political Science from the University of Arizona. She also holds certificates in Archival Management, Digital Curation and Data Management, and Historic Preservation and a second master’s in Information Science from the University of North Texas.
Jennifer holds the unique distinction of being a scholar of NASA history and women’s history. She has been featured as a subject matter expert in several documentaries; is an accomplished oral historian; has presented at numerous national conferences; and authored many publications. In 2014, the Texas State Historical Association awarded the Liz Carpenter Award to Texas Women: Their Histories, Their Lives, a book containing her chapter on Mae Jemison, the first female astronaut of color. In 2012, Jennifer was awarded the Charles Thomson Prize from the Society for History in the Federal Government for her chapter focusing on the Shuttle accidents in NASA’s Wings In Orbit: Scientific and Engineering Legacies of the Space Shuttle. Her essay, “You’ve Come a Long Way, Maybe: The First Six Women Astronauts and the Media,” was included in Spacefarers: Images of Astronauts and Cosmonauts in the Heroic Era of Spaceflight (2013) and noted as “fascinating and an in-depth study on how the first group of NASA women dealt with the still occasionally sexist media.” For this work, she received her second Thomson Prize in three years.
