Planetary Geochemistry

Dr Penny King has worked with NASA to conduct research utilising the ‘Curiosity’ rover on Mars. Her research examines surface and interior processes on planetary bodies. Her research attempts to understand the fundamental geochemical aspects of astromaterials under different conditions. Knowing how materials behave under different conditions allows us to predict planetary environments (in the past and future) and to make better tools to explore our solar system.
