California Institute of Technology

Andrew Annex is a postdoctoral scholar research associate at the California Institute of Technology in the Geological and Planetary Sciences Division, and he joined the Mastcam-Z team in 2022. He completed his Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University in January 2022, where he is also now a visiting scientist. His research interests include the intersections of remote sensing and machine learning with geology, applied towards understanding the geologic history and surface processes of Mars and ocean worlds like Enceladus, with a particular interest in habitability. He is excited about integrating observations from Perseverance and Ingenuity with those acquired from orbit to better understand the stratigraphy within Jezero crater. While not working on Mars, he enjoys contributing to open-source software projects while listening to his favorite musicians.
