Profiles in "Planetary Sciences" Expertise Area

  • A creative and approachable educator and research scientist in the School of Molecular Sciences at ASU.
  • Scientific Software Engineer at the Mars Space Flight Facility, working mostly on the Java Mission-planning and Analysis for Remote Sensing tool, also known as JMARS.
  • Christensen uses spectroscopy, radiometry, field observations, numerical modeling, and builds flight instruments to study the geology and history of planets and moons.
  • Shock studies how geologic processes have geochemical consequences that enable biological responses through fieldwork in extreme ecosystems, hydrothermal experiments on organic transformations, and modeling of water-organic-rock-microbe systems
  • David A. Williams is a planetary geologist who studies volcanoes and volcanic deposits throughout the Solar System. He makes geologic maps planets, moons, and asteroids in support of NASA flight missions.
  • Craig Hardgrove is a planetary scientist who studies the Moon, Mars, and asteroids using nuclear remote sensing datasets to determine water and ice abundance and evolution. Hardgrove is PI of the LunaH-Map cubesat mission.
  • Srinidhi Ravi is a 5th year PhD candidate under Dr. Mark Robinson on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) team. Her research focuses on constraining the lithospheric evolution of the lunar Procellarum KREEP Terrane.
  • David is the Data Manager and GIS Specialist for the Ronald Greeley Center for Planetary Studies (RGCPS) in SESE, teaches GIS seminars, and assists students, faculty, and staff in GIS research.
