Join the MSBR for our luncheon in July with special guest, Dr. Jinni Meehan!

Dr. Jinni Meehan is the new Assistant Director for Space Policy at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).

Before assuming her role at OSTP in February, Dr. Meehan made significant contributions to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), where she served as the National Space Weather Program Manager since 2018, supporting plans, projects, and policies to strengthen the service capacity of the National Weather Service’s space weather operations. Prior to this, she held positions at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC). Additionally, she serves as an Adjunct Professor at Millersville University of Pennsylvania for their graduate program, “Space Weather and Environment: Science, Policy, and Communication.”

Dr. Meehan earned her Bachelor of Science in Meteorology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, followed by a Master of Science in Atmospheric and Space Sciences from Hampton University. She later completed her Ph.D. in Physics at Utah State University and conducted postdoctoral research at the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology.

Dr. Meehan’s distinguished career in space science and policy is characterized by leadership positions and innovative contributions, for which she has been recognized with the DOC Gold Medal and NOAA’s Order of Sherman’s Lagoon. We extend our congratulations to Dr. Meehan on her new role and eagerly anticipate the impactful work she will lead at OSTP.
