Nagin Cox
Nagin Cox
Spacecraft Operations Engineer



As a 10-year-old girl fascinated by Star Trek and Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, Nagin Cox had a dream of exploring space. And through incredible determination, a fighting spirit and a never-quit attitude, she has done just that. Cox has been a spacecraft operations engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for more than two decades and has played a key role on a number of robotic space exploration missions.

A native of Bangalore, India, Cox grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. As a young woman raised in a Muslim/multi-cultural household, she realized how easily we separate ourselves based on gender, race or nationality. This experience inspired her to do something that brings people together instead of dividing them. The Space Program helps the world “look up” and remember that we are one world, she says.

At JPL, Cox has held leadership and system engineering positions on multiple interplanetary robotic missions including the Galileo mission to Jupiter and four of the five rovers the United States has sent to Mars, as well as the Kepler exoplanet hunter. She is currently a Tactical Mission Lead on the Mars Curiosity Rover, as well as an Assistant Mission Manager on the Operations Team of the Mars2020 Perseverance Rover.

Before joining JPL, Cox served in the U.S. Air Force as a Behavioral Psychologist and System Engineer in F-16 Aircrew Training and then as a Space Operations Officer at NORAD/US Space Command. Nagin holds engineering degrees from Cornell University and the Air Force Institute of Technology, as well as a psychology degree from Cornell. Sometimes she is not sure which one she uses more — the engineering degree or the psychology degree! Nagin is honored to be the namesake for Asteroid 14061. She has also received the NASA Exceptional Service Medal and two NASA Exceptional Achievement Medals.

Nagin is an award-winning speaker for both NASA/JPL and the U.S. Department of State. She has spoken to audiences around the world on the stories of the people behind the missions, as well as leadership and the importance of STEM worldwide. TED called her a “first generation Martian” in her talk on one of the humorous sides to robotic space exploration.

Cox is a past member of Cornell University’s President’s Council for Cornell Women and has served on the boards of Griffith Observatory Foundation and Impact Personal Safety: Self-Defense & Empowerment for Women. She currently serves on the Advisory Committee for the Women’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch and is an Advisory Council Member for The Planetary Society.

In her downtime, Nagin has raced with her dragon boating team, competed in sprint triathlons, participated in CalTech Theatre and sung with a Sweet Adelines barbershop chorus. She also enjoys exploring this planet with her husband.

Otmar Szafnauer
Otmar Szafnauer
CEO and Team Principal of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team



Otmar Szafnauer leads the team into the first chapter of the Aston era drawing from a wealth of experience in Formula One and beyond.

His time in Formula One has involved helping to establish teams that punch well above their weight to challenge for and deliver podiums and victories, maximising resources to create strong and lasting foundations. 

It’s this experience that makes him the ideal candidate to take a new-look team into the 2021 season as well as Formula One’s revolution in technical regulations for 2022 as the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team aims to become one of the leading organisations.

Otmar has a wide variety of motorsport experience to draw on, representing some of the biggest international manufacturers in the business, beginning with a lengthy spell at Ford. After joining in 1986, he worked as a manager of Ford Racing in 1993.

Following a stint in motorsport himself, driving in USAC FF2000 and USF2000, Otmar took up the position as the first Operations Director for the British American Racing Team in F1, next moving to Jaguar as COO and ultimately to Honda in 2002.

Having held positions on the management board, including Vice President of Honda Racing Development, Otmar left the Japanese marque when Honda departed the sport in 2009.

He arrived at Force India not long after and helped transform one of Formula One’s minnows into often challenging the frontrunners, able to capitalise on opportunities to score frequent podium finishes and a race win. 

Under his leadership, Otmar oversaw a rise from the back of the grid to historic fourth places in the Formula One World Championships of 2016, 2017 and 2020.

With the experience of establishing Force India and Racing Point as one of F1’s leading midfield teams, Otmar is ideally placed to help develop a successful Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team in the coming years.
