Ph.D. Planetary Science 1999 University of Arizona
BA. Physics 1994 Rice University

I am a planetary scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). I received an undergraduate degree in physics from Rice University and a Ph.D. in planetary science from the University of Arizona. My research interests involve understanding the evolution of rocky planetary bodies in the Solar System. At APL, I oversee an experimental geochemistry laboratory that is used to conduct experiments at elevated temperatures and pressures to investigate the differentiation and evolution of planetary bodies. I am currently the Deputy PI for the MEGANE instrument on the MMX mission, and Instrument Scientist for the DRACO instrument on the DART mission. Prior to joining APL, I worked at NASA Johnson Space Center and Case Western Reserve University. I have also been a member of five field teams with the Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) program, the Instrument Scientist for the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS) on the MESSENGER mission, an Associate Editor for the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science, chair of NASA’s Small Bodies Assessment Group (SBAG), and a member of NASA’s Planetary Science Subcommittee. Asteroid 6899 Nancychabot is named after me.
