Kelly Korreck


Astrophysicist, Kelly Korreck, knows how to handle the heat. She builds and operates instruments to study the Sun and understand its hot explosive outer atmosphere or corona. Her career has taken her from the desert of New Mexico to Japan, to the innermost part of the solar system. Kelly headed up science operations and project management for the SWEAP Suite aboard Parker Solar Probe. She works with engineers and scientists to create the best data from this once-in-a-lifetime mission. Kelly holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Astronomy and a Ph.D. in Space Physics both from the University of Michigan. When not studying the sun, she can be found near the beach, running, dancing, or in the yoga studio

If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be and why?

I would be on the shores of Lake Michigan! Summer time on the lake is always my favorite part of the year! Exploring for rocks and shells, relaxing on the warm beach and ice cream!
