Kaitlin Dennison earned her B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT (2017). She received her M.S. in aeronautics & astronautics from Stanford University in Stanford, CA (2019) where she is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in aeronautics & astronautics.
Kaitlin worked with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on telescope optics to aid the search for exoplanets. She was also a scholar for the Air Force Research Laboratory where she improved the spacecraft tracking algorithms involving telescope imagery. Additionally, she interned for Blue Origin where she progressed LIDAR-based navigation methods. Her dissertation research in the Space Rendezvous Laboratory advances multi-agent optical tracking and structure from motion in spacecraft swarms with limited resources.
