Staff Scientist

Dr. Edgard G. Rivera-Valentín is a planetary scientist with USRA at the Lunar and Planetary Institute who investigates surface processes on solar system bodies, such as impact cratering and atmosphere-surface interactions, using computer simulations along with space- and groundbased observations and laboratory measurements. Such studies help constrain the formation of our solar system, its evolution, and present-day processes that affect habitability, such as liquid formation and potential threats from impacts.
