Christopher L. Bertagne

Thermal Engineer at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory



portraitI received my B.S. and M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2013 and 2016, respectively. I completed my M.S. studies under the guidance of Drs. Darren Hartl and John Whitcomb. My research was funded through the NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship (NSTRF) program and focused on developing modeling tools to support the development of morphing radiator technology for future spacecraft thermal control systems. I began working at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a thermal engineer in September 2016 and I am currently working full-time on NASA’s Europa Clipper mission.
