Shane is a Ph.D. Candidate in Planetary Sciences at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory. Upon completion of this Ph.D., I will begin a NASA Postdoctoral Program fellowship at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
He is interested broadly in planetary atmospheres, especially atmospheric chemistry. My current research is focused on the upper atmosphere of Mars using data from the Neutral Gas and Ion Mass Spectrometer (NGIMS) onboard the NASA Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission.
He has received a Masters of Science in Planetary Sciences from the University of Arizona, a Masters of Science in Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry from the University of Texas at Dallas.
