Adrienne Rector, a two-time scholarship winner for SSPI, is a senior at Embry-Riddle University in Prescott, AZ. Although she has enjoyed an interest in space-faring technologies since her high school days studying rocketry, her current passion is Space Mechanics, and she hopes to focus her studies on Space Systems and Experimental Space Systems. She hopes eventually to study at an international university to gain a broader perspective on the industry. Her sample work, T3R: Rubidium Clock Measurement and Calibration Adjustment, is a graphical user interface for a program that finds the azimuth and elevation to desired target bodies in space, and plots their ground track on a map. The interface was so successful, her advising professor has begun work to convert the results into an app for smartphones.
Adrienne received SSPI's International Scholarship in 2013 and 2014.
