About the Lecturer
Cherie Miskey
After graduating from RIT, Cherie Miskey moved to Washington, DC, to work for the Catholic University of America at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center as a data analyst with the Hubble Space Telescope, Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer, and other space telescopes. She has been an author on dozens of refereed science journal articles and produced images for publication in periodicals (Astronomy, Nature) and press releases  (NASA, American Astronomical Society, Space Telescope Science Institute).
Cherie then worked on the Land-sat 7 satellite as a calibration scientist. Several years later she joined the Optics team building the next generation space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). She is the Optical Test Lead for the JWST cryogenic-vacuum testing and is very exciting about its impending launch in October of 2018.
