Handheld IR Spectrometer

This project focuses on using the technology and performance of multi-million dollar, telescope-based, IR spectrometers used on flagship NASA exploration missions around the solar system. The researcher is using this information to create an earthbound counterpart that is capable of performing the same science for a fraction of the cost. This project can be accomplished

Mapping Variability in the Medusae Fossae Formation

The Medusae Fossae Formation is an unusual region of Mars, stretching across a part of Mars about the size of the United States, that is characterized by fine-grained deposits and shaped by aeolian erosion. This project aims to characterize the material properties of the Medusae Fossae Formation, both by searching for evidence of fluvial erosion
