We welcome Dr. Noam Izenberg from The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory as a new member of HEMI, effective immediately.
Dr. Izenberg is interested in the remote sensing and in situ measurement of the surface composition, morphology, stratigraphy, and active geologic processes of rocky planetary and solar system small bodies. His research interests include the hydrologic cycle and surface/atmosphere interface processes of said celestial bodies in extreme environments. As a distinguished member of the Johns Hopkins community, he received the APL Hart Prize for Excellence in Independent Research and Development in 2009, and the NASA Group and Public Service Group Achievement awards for the NEAR Shoemaker, MESSENGER, and MRO CRISM missions.
Prior to joining the Applied Physics Lab, he obtained a Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Washington University (1996), and his B.Sc. with honors in Geology from Brown University (1989).
In the near future, Dr. Izenberg will be working with Dr. Sarah Hörst on the DAVINCI proposal – a proposed mission concept for an atmospheric probe to Venus.
