Cassini and it’s ‘grand’ tour of the Saturn System
Emily is a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies. Emily’s research interests are in planetary surface processes and tectonic deformation of icy bodies of the outer solar system. Determining how the preserved deformation on an icy surface has evolved provides observational constrains for models to estimate what cannot be directly measured. Emily received her BA in physics from Wheaton College (MA) in 2006, her MS from Northwestern in earth and planetary science in 2009, and her PhD in geological sciences from the University of Idaho in 2014.
