Dr. Gail Skofronick-Jackson, FAMU-FSU Engineering alumna, died suddenly in early September 2021. She was a Program Manager at NASA Headquarters, Science Mission Directorate, where she provided scientific expertise and management support for the Weather focus area, Research & Analysis.

Prior to her appointment at NASA HQ, Gail worked in various capacities at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD beginning in 1997, including as a Post-Doc Research Associate, the Chief of the NASA Goddard Mesoscale Atmospheric Processes Laboratory, and as the Project Scientist for the NASA Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission.

Her research interests include passive remote sensing, radiative transfer theory, and active and passive spaceborne falling snow detection and estimation.
Dr. Gail Skofronick-Jackson received her B.S. degree in electrical engineering (EE) from Florida State University and her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in EE from Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Skofronick-Jackson was an active member of the American Meteorological Society, American Geophysical Union, and the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS).
