Dr. Paul M. Schenk
A space-groupie since Gemini days in the mid 1960's, my first formal introduction to planetary sciences was as a NASA Planetary Geology summer intern in 1979 at JPL during the Voyager 2 Jupiter encounter. Working for Voyager during one of its encounters was an unforgettable experience. (Since 1992 I have also been an intern advisor for LPI's summer intern program.) In 1988 I completed my Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis under Dr. William B. McKinnon. Since arriving at the LPI in 1991 I have been using Voyager, Galileo, and Cassini stereo and monoscopic images to map the topography and geology of the icy outer planet satellites (and dabbled a bit on Mars and the Moon).
I have also been a stereo image afficionado for many years, and in 1997 completed an educational/fun CD-ROM entitled 3-D Tour of the Solar System showing the planets in 3-D. Other interests include 20th Century history, the Titanic, volleyball, stained glass, scuba, and deep sea diving.
In 2012, my Atlas of the Galilean Satellites (copyright 2010) was published.
