Dr. Karen Meech

 am an astrobiologist interested in understanding how the ingredients that make a world habitable are delivered to terrestrial planets in their host star’s habitable zone. In particular, I am interested in understanding the distribution of volatiles in the early solar system, and how water was delivered to Earth.

I’m involved in large international collaborations both for research and graduate and early career field training. I recently led the characterization of the first interstellar object – discovered by PanSTARRS.

I believe that the key to innovative science involves interdisciplinary research, and I lead the UHNAI Astrobiology research team at UH.
