Ryan Prouty, as a direct report to the International Space Station (ISS) program manager, is leading the effort to re-engineer the ISS program to better meet its vision of enabling science discovery and fostering commercial enterprise. The initiative, Revolutionize ISS for Science and Exploration, will be a paradigm shift from values and norms required for building an international orbiting outpost, to values and norms required to enable science discovery and viable commerce in Low Earth orbit. Prior to this position, she led multiple teams of highly skilled mid-level managers: one that directed anomaly resolution activities for onboard vehicle system failures and another that managed research integration activities for the ISS science compliment. She began her career in 1997 as a Communications and Tracking Officer, where she logged thousands of hours as the sole operator monitoring ISS performance on orbit. She has been awarded the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal and two Exceptional Achievement medals, one for her current role. Prouty earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of Wyoming.

Hakeem Oluseyi i (pronounced oh-loo-SAY-ee) is an astrophysicist, educator, and humanitarian. Dr. Oluseyi trounced race and class to become an important contributor to computer technology and space research. He is based at MIT in Boston as an MLK Faculty Fellow and serves at University California, Berkeley as a visiting scholar, and at the Florida Institute of Technology as an associate professor. He leads research that hacks stars to understand the fundamental interactions of plasmas and electromagnetic fields and investigates galactic structure and formation by using techniques of big data astroinformatics and high-performance computing applied to survey data. He recently began working with the 100 Year Starship Project to help lay the groundwork in preparation for the first human mission to a nearby star system. Dr. Oluseyi has been featured as a subject matter expert on news programs for CNN,NBC, MSNBC, PBS, and Fox News and appears regularly in TV series as the go-to media personality and scientific subject matter expert for space sciences. He holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Physics and Math from Tougaloo College, a Master’s of Science in Physics from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University.
