Jeanne Davis, Associate Director for Astrophysics at NASA Headquarters, will present about the science and engineering behind Webb. Ms. Davis has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Molecular Biology and a Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, both from the University of Central Florida.
