K. Megan McArthur ( Ph.D.)
NASA Astronaut

PERSONAL DATA: Born in 1971 in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Considers California to be her home state.  Married.  Her parents, Don & Kit McArthur, reside in San Jose, California.  Megan enjoys SCUBA diving, backpacking, and cooking.

EDUCATION: Graduated from St. Francis High School, Mountain View, CA, 1989. B. S. Aerospace Engineering, University of California-Los Angeles, 1993. Ph.D., Oceanography, University of California-San Diego, 2002.

EXPERIENCE: At the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Megan conducted graduate research in nearshore underwater acoustic propagation and digital signal processing.  Her research focused on determining geoacoustic models to describe very shallow water waveguides using measured transmission loss data in a genetic algorithm inversion technique.  She served as Chief Scientist during at-sea data collection operations, and has planned and led diving operations during sea-floor instrument deployments and sediment-sample collections.  While at Scripps, she participated in a range of in-water instrument testing, deployment, maintenance, and recovery, and collection of marine plants, animals, and sediment.  During this time, Megan also volunteered at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, conducting educational demonstrations for the public from inside a 70,000 gallon exhibit tank of the California Kelp Forest.

NASA EXPERIENCE: Selected as a mission specialist by NASA in July 2000, Megan McArthur reported for training in August 2000.  Following the completion of two years of training and evaluation, she was assigned to the Astronaut Office Shuttle Operations Branch working technical issues on shuttle systems in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory (SAIL). Dr. McArthur then served as the Crew Support Astronaut for the Expedition 9 Crew during their six-month mission aboard the International Space Station.  She also worked in the Space Station and Space Shuttle Mission Control Centers as a Capsule Communicator (CAPCOM).  Dr. McArthur is assigned to STS-125, the final Space Shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. The mission will extend and improve the observatory’s capabilities through 2014.  Launch is targeted for 2009.
