Steve Davis

Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX)
Director of Advanced Projects

Dr. Steve Davis has worked at SpaceX since 2003 and was one of the first employees in a company which has grown to 1500 employees. At SpaceX, Steve has also worked as Chief Engineer on the Falcon-1 Guidance, Navigation, and Control system and as Lead Systems Engineer on the Dragon Spacecraft Program. The latter culminated in SpaceX’s “Dragon Demo C1 Mission,” the first time in history that a private entity launched, orbited, reentered, and recovered a space capsule.

Steve has founded and still owns several retail food businesses, his favorite concept being the Mr. Yogato frozen yogurt stores, where customers can earn discounts in goofy ways, such as doing the Thriller dance, getting a stamp on their forehead, or reciting the Braveheart speech.

Steve has a B.S. in Finance and a B.A.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, an M.S. in Particle Physics from the University of Durham, an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from Stanford University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University.
