University of Copenhagen

Sanna Alwmark is a postdoc with the Niels Bohr Institute Mars group, and a postdoc collaborator on Mastcam-Z. She is a geologist who primarily studies impact cratering as a process and the effects of impact cratering on planetary bodies, from shock effects in minerals to biosphere perturbation. She is also interested in the geological evolution of Mars and other terrestrial planets from other perspectives than impact cratering. Sanna is passionate about public outreach and frequently gives popular scientific lectures that deal with, for example, Earth’s collisional history, Mars, and the Moon.
