Meet...Katherine Shirley

Katherine Shirley

Name: Katherine Shirley
Job title: Postdoctoral Research Assistant

What are you currently working on?
As a geologist, I am interested in the types of rocks on the Moon’s surface and what they can tell us about the Moon’s geologic history. Right now, I am studying several lunar volcanoes primarily using the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's Diviner dataset, which tells us about rock composition, and comparing that data to laboratory measurements of different volcanic rocks from Earth.
