Ms. Kari Morris

Research Engineer I, Rotorcraft Systems Engineering & Simulation Center (RSESC)

Biography

Ms. Morris is a research engineer with experience in data analysis, software development (desktop, database, and web applications), and manufacture and test of space flight hardware. She holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Auburn University and a M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). During her time as a research engineer at UAH, she has developed prognostics software using Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) data, supported U.S. Army and Department of Defense Item Unique Identification (IUID) efforts, and provided data analysis and software development support for a number of Reliability Lab projects. Earlier in her career, Ms. Morris served as a propulsion test engineer for the Delta IV Launch Vehicle program, where she performed acceptance testing for Common Booster Core tanks and engine section. She also performed structural qualification testing for the Common Booster Core fuel and oxidizer tanks.
