Carey Lisse

Dr. Carey Lisse has over 40 years of experience in experimental and observational research that includes studies in astrophysics, detector physics, (bio)chemical physics, optics, electronics, and remote sensing data analysis. His overall goals are to better understand the formation & evoution of solar systems. At JHU-APL, he is involved with studying the physical properties of primitive solar system objects; the rock-forming dust contained in comets, the IPD cloud, the Proto-Solar Nebula, and YSOs; x-ray emission from solar system bodies and the heliosphere; and designing, building, and operating Solar System spacecraft missions.

Xiaojing Zhang

Dr. Xiaojing Zhang
Qian Xuesen Laborotary of Space Technology, China Academy of Space Technology, Beijing

Dr Zhang was trained as a geologist and the research experience in geology has sparked her great interest in understanding the origin and geological evolution of the solar system through exploring small bodies. She is now focusing on studying the surface property of small bodies and developing regolith simulants for space exploration missions.
