When I think of Marielle, I think of bright colours and Nasa 😍Which is such a badass combination! She is an aerospace engineer who adds a tropical spin into everything she touches. And she is the reason why I got excited about space in the first place!
Follow Marielle on social media and learn about her story below!
Miss Aerospace is about sharing space news and phenomena with the public. I break down everything from how to spot satellites in the night sky and see a meteor shower to how to tune into the latest interplanetary mission milestone.
How did you get into tech?
As an aerospace engineer, my work requires me to do a lot of programming. At my undergrad, we were all required to learn C++ and Matlab. Though as a grad student I end up working in everything from Fortran to Python as well.
What languages/technologies do you have the most experience in?
My favourite is Matlab for its ease of use but some of the simulations I run are over centuries so I also have code in C.
What are you currently learning/practising?
Matlab/C mostly. I dabbled in Julia a bit but I wasn’t happy with the integrator performance for my work. When I work elsewhere Python and Fortran make their way into my sphere.
What are your favourite resources to learn/stay updated on tech?
A lot of how I learn is trial and error. With that said I go to stack overflow quite a bit when I am working in a new program.
What would people learn about by following you?
What inspired you to start sharing your experiences on social media?
More representation of women in the field and to share how easy it is to access information like what constellation you are looking at.
How can we get in touch with you?
iPhone or Android?
Dogs or cats?
I’m allergic :/
What’s your favourite ice cream flavour?
What’s the next place you want to travel to?
How many hours of sleep do you need to get to feel like yourself?
