Raewyn Duvall '12

Kennedy Space Center is home for Raewyn Duvall, a Pathways Student Engineer with The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) SwampWorks, a lab that does research and rapid prototyping of robotic systems that may one day make it onto the robots that will explore space. Raewyn’s focus in the lab is computer engineering and autonomous control for ground robotics. She is pursuing dual master’s degrees, one in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and another in robotics at the University of Plymouth in the United Kingdom.
On May 4, 2023, two Carnegie Melon University projects head to the moon—Iris, a tiny, lightweight lunar rover built by CMU students, and the MoonArk, a collaborative sculpture project led by faculty, students and alumni. Duvall will serve as commander of the Iris mission!
