Center for Meteorite Studies

The recipients of the prestigious 2016 NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) have been announced, and include the Center's own Emilie Dunham!

Emilie DunhamEmilie's research focuses on measuring the rare earth element (REE) abundances of Martian basaltic meteorites to determine their formation history and composition of the parent magma. She is also analyzing beryllium and boron isotopes in refractory materials from primitive meteorites in order to better constrain the processes that occurred in the extreme environment predating planetary formation in the early Solar System.

The NESSF program awards students from accredited U.S. universities pursuing Master of Science or doctoral degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The purpose of the NESSF is to ensure continued training of a highly qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA’s scientific goals.

Congratulations Emilie!
