Susan C. Lee
Chief Scientist, Infocentric Operations
The Johns Hopkins University
Applied Physics Laboratory


Susan Lee worked for the Space Department at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory nearly continuously following her graduation from college in 1973 until January of 1998. During this time, she worked on a number of NASA scientific spacecraft and instruments, including SAS-C, TOPEX, and NEAR. Her very first job in the Department was to integrate information and theories on the mysterious failure of one of the oldest craft in a Navy navigation satellite constellation (a system that preceded GPS). This early experience initiated a career-long interest in learning from and preventing space mishaps.

Susan's educational background includes multiple and diverse degrees:

Currently, Susan Lee is the Chief Scientist for the Infocentric Operations (IO) Business Area at the Laboratory. She is responsible for defining and guiding the IO science and technology program, including internal and sponsored research.
