Emily Calandrelli        

Aerospace Engineer; Host & Producer of FOX's "Xploration Outer Space"

Emily Calandrelli is a producer and the host of FOX's "Xploration Outer Space." She is also a contributing writer at TechCrunch. She has written and spoken on the topics of space exploration, scientific literacy and equality.

Emily's educational background is in engineering and policy. She holds a bachelor's degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from West Virginia University. She received her master's degree from MIT in Aeronautics and Astronautics and Technology and Policy.

Emily is passionate about space exploration. Through her show, she wants to prove that the space industry is more exciting today than ever before in history. As the host, Emily works to explain science-related topics in an easily digestible and entertaining way.

Increasing the level of scientific literacy among the general public is also something Emily cares deeply about. She believes that everyone, despite their educational background, can understand scientific topics. Emily hopes to convince more people of this and foster a higher level of scientific literacy in society through various projects and speaking engagements.

Lastly, Emily wants to inspire more females to pursue STEM careers. She believes most young students, especially women and minorities, don't realize how many amazing, creative, and often free opportunities exist for students who pursue STEM majors. She hopes to change that.

In April 2017, Calandrelli made several appearances on Netflix's "Bill Nye Saves the World."
