I'm Fiona Nichols-Fleming, a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Emily Martin in the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the National Air and Space Museum. My research focuses on computational and analytical modeling of planetary geophysical systems to link internal evolution of bodies to their observable surfaces.
I received my PhD in 2023 from the Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Brown University. For my PhD, I worked in the GHOSST Lab with Alex Evans and Brandon Johnson at Purdue University. From 2015 - 2019, I was an astronomy undergraduate at the University of Rochester and participated in summer REU programs at Cornell with Alex Hayes and at the SETI Institute with Cristina Dalle Ore.
