Congratulations to Sabine Stanley and Morgan Trexler, who have been appointed as new members of the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) Executive Committee.
Stanley is a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor in the Johns Hopkins Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. Her research involves understanding planetary interior processes and evolution. She focuses on planetary magnetic fields, dynamo theory, interior structure models and other geophysical methods to learn about the deep interiors of planets. 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 various missions to explore her science questions.
Trexler is a Materials Engineer at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. Her research interests include high rate impact mechanics, armor, biomechanics, and multifunctional and expeditionary materials. She received her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2014, she won the Outstanding Young Engineer award from the Maryland Academy of Sciences.
The HEMI Executive Committee exercises general responsibility over the activities within the Institute, considers major issues and makes recommendations to the Director. The Executive Committee establishes policies and procedures consistent with the goals of the HEMI mission. It meets monthly.
