Majd Mayyasi Matta


I am a postdoc at the Center for Space Physics, working with Professor John Clarke on understanding water escape from Mars. My current research includes investigating the D/H ratios around Mars. My research interests also include investigating the composition, thermal structure, and dynamics of plasma in the Martian ionosphere. My motivation for studying the abundances and escape channels of oxygenated and hydrogenated ions in the atmosphere is to determine water escape rates.
