Abstract: Marianne Paguia Gonzalez is an engineer and technologist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Marianne has her B.S and M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Long Beach State and University of Southern California .  She has worked on the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) for the Mars Perseverance Rover. MOXIE has successfully produced oxygen on Mars using Solid Oxide Electrolysis. In addition, she has worked on the Spacecraft Atmospheric Monitor (S.A.M.) for the International Space Station, which uses Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry to analyze cabin air for crew members. As of late, Marianne is currently the Instrument Systems Engineer for the Europa Clipper Magnetometer (ECM). ECM intends to study the effects of Jupiter's magnetosphere on Europa and to help understand the subsurface ocean.
