Corey Jamieson
Research Scientist

Dr. Corey Jamieson utilizes laboratory measurements and simulations to determine planetary compositions and chemical histories in order to develop formation scenarios and illuminate current geologic processes. Corey specializes in radiation-induced chemistry and spectroscopic analysis of cryogenic ice analogs. His recent work has focused on unraveling the surface chemistry of Pluto and Triton and he is currently using visible and infrared reflectance spectroscopy to complement and model spacecraft observations of Mars, Europa, Enceladus and other planetary surfaces.
