Briony Horgan is a Co-Investigator on Mastcam-Z and an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University. Her research program uses data from NASA satellites and rovers, along with lab and field work back on Earth, to understand the surface processes that have shaped Mars and the Moon. She is particularly interested in using mineralogy from Mastcam-Z multispectral images to investigate the habitability of past surface environments in Jezero crater.
