Amy Magnus, PhD

Have you noticed the “Strong Town” illustrations on our website? These were done by our very talented volunteer, Amy Magnus.

The big secret is that Amy is just beginning to flex her pen as an illustrator. In her other life, she is the founder of the Yellow Springs Science Castle, a nonprofit that advocates for greater agency in education and more play in work. As executive director of the emerging museum, Amy hosts popup events that introduce children to advanced science, math and technology through art, invention, and play.

She is a 20 year veteran of the United States Air Force and spent her career researching human computer teaming and computational intelligence. She had tours as a program manager at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, a visiting scientist at Cornell University, and a research assistant professor at the Air Force Institute of Technology. Amy holds a PhD in Electro Optics from the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology.

Thank you, Amy!
