NPS Students to Benefit from NASA Expertise

By Javier Chagoya
NASA Chair and Ames Research Center Chief Engineer Dr. Tina Panontin is pictured in her Bullard Hall office, Feb. 9. Panontin will begin offering classes this spring drawing upon her expertise in materials failure analysis.
"This is a win-win opportunity for those looking to advance their knowledge in this particular career field at NASA. At the same time, I get to share my experiences with NPS students in the investigation processes of failure analysis," said Panontin.
As part of a long standing partnership between NASA and NPS, NASA provides a high-ranking representative from one of its ten NASA field centers to serve as NASA chair at NPS.
Panontin has been involved in some of NASA's most critical operations over the last 30 years. She is excited about the opportunity to teach and share some of the lessons learned from her distinguished career.
Panontin is the 11th NPS NASA Chair. She will serve another six months at NPS before returning to NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.
