Please join us in welcoming Prof. Sabine Stanley to HEMI! She is a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and the Space Exploration Sector of the Applied Physics Lab. She is a planetary physicist studying planetary internal and external processes, focusing on planetary magnetic fields, dynamo theory, interior structure models and other geophysical methods. Her work includes projects on many solar system bodies (Mercury, Moon, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, asteroids and planetesimals) as well as extrasolar planets. She uses a combination of numerical simulations, theory and comparison to observations from missions such as the Juno Mission to Jupiter, and the Cassini mission to Saturn.
Prof. Stanley received a B.Sc. degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Toronto and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Geophysics from Harvard University. Prior to joining Johns Hopkins she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at MIT from 2004-2005 and a Professor at the University of Toronto from 2005-2017.
