Short Bio: Stephanie Chiesi earned a B.S. in Aeronautics and Astronautics, a B.S. in Biology, and an M.S. in Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During that time, she worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). While in graduate school, she worked as a research assistant in the Complex Systems Research Laboratory (CSRL) where her research focused on design visualization translation into intent specifications and utilizing system modeling tools for early design phase execution of system level requirements.
Ms. Chiesi has worked as a systems engineer at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory (CSDL) and at Paragon Space Development Corporation. Ms. Chiesi joined Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) in May of 2014 as a principal systems engineer. She works with other subject matter experts to develop and implement Model Based Systems Engineering across the enterprise. In 2017 she became the first RMS SERC doctoral fellow, beginning her studies at Stevens Institute of Technology.
In addition to her assignments at her places of employment, Ms. Chiesi is also an active member of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). She achieved the Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certification through INCOSE in April of 2014.
