Annie Easley


Computer Scientist

Annie Easley is among the growing group of women who are making major contributions to energy research and management.  Working at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Lewis Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, Easley develops and implements computer codes used in solar, wind, and other energy projects.  Her energy assignments have included studies to determine the life of storage batteries (such as those used in electric vehicles) and to identify energy conversion systems that offer the greatest improvement over commercially available technology.

A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Easley has worked for NASA and its predecessor agency since 1955.  She continued her education while working and, in 1977, obtained a degree in mathematics from Cleveland State University.  Over the years she attended many courses in her specialization offered by NASA.
