BIO

Carin Cornwall is from Flagstaff, Arizona where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in geology and first began her research in aeolian processes on Mars as a science technician for the United States Geological Survey. She attended the University of Washington where her Master’s research focused on the thermopysical properties of aeolian deposits on Mars and abrasion of mafic minerals in the laboraory to determine a potential mafic mineral maturity index for martian sediments. She is now at the University of Ulster pursuing a Ph.D.

Her current research interests include the rate, timing and volume of aeolian sediment transport on Mars, changes in dune morphology, and computational fluid dynamics.
