Artificial Intelligence Researcher/Mission Resilience Lead – NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Dr. Evana Gizzi is an Artificial Intelligence Researcher and Mission Resilience Lead at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). Her work is focused on domain agnostic novelty resolution methods in intelligent agents, which she has applied to both the robotics and aerospace domain. She currently serves as principal investigator to the Space Autonomy and Resilience (SPAR) group at NASA GSFC, which investigates methods for fault mitigation in satellites using artificial intelligence methods. Dr. Gizzi also serves as the Mission Resilience lead for the Distributed Systems Mission (DSM) internal research and development project at GSFC, which is utilizing her teams fault mitigation methods in a constellation mission design concept. Dr. Gizzi resides in Massachusetts, where she is prioritizing the cultivation of AI-focused collaboration between NASA and the New England region. Before joining NASA, Dr. Gizzi earned her BS and MS in Applied and Computational Mathematics at UMass Lowell, and an MS in Computer Science, and PhD in Artificial Intelligence at Tufts University.
