Stefanie Milam


Stefanie Milam is Deputy Project Scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope at NASA. Her observational focus is on the composition of primitive bodies, such as comets and asteroids, and she uses JWST to understand the connection of these bodies to the formation and evolution of planetary systems. She also has a laboratory dedicated to simulate interstellar/cometary/planetary ices and led the study team for solar system science for WFIRST. In 2021, an asteroid was renamed in her honor. She received the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 2022 for her work on enabling Solar System Science with JWST.
