Noel Scudder is a student collaborator on the Mastcam-Z team and a PhD student at Purdue University. His research involves understanding the geologic and climate history of Mars through investigation of volcanic and weathering processes in cold Mars analog environments. His work combines remote sensing, data analysis, laboratory work, and fieldwork on Earth and Mars, and he is interested in using Mastcam-Z multispectral data to investigate possible volcanic origins of rocks and sand in Jezero crater.
