Barbara Janoiko is an Engineering Project Manager in the Crew and Thermal Systems Division at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.

While earning her B.S. in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University, she worked for NASA as a cooperative education student. She has recently been the Project Manager for the suit port and aft deck systems of the Space Exploration Vehicle project, but currently she is Test Coordinator for the Desert RATS analog program and lead for NASA Advanced Exploration Systems Analogs.

She observed PLRP test activities for a few days in 2010, and is looking forward to being an integral part of the team in 2011 as a science stenographer. This experience will provide insight that will be helpful for Desert RATS and other analog science activities.
