Hi, I'm Evan Bjonnes!
I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow researching asteroid impacts in Caliornia!
I primarily study how the impact process shapes surfaces across the Solar System. My work shows how the geologic conditions on different planets and moons affect the development of large impact basins, helping us understand how planets evolve using existing craters that we can observe today!
Learn More About the Research I'm Involved In:
I am one of the many postdoctoral researchers working on impact crater problems at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My research specifically focuses on asteroidal impacts using the recent DART kinetic impact experiment .
I was one of the many postdoctoral researchers at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, TX. My research there specifically focused on the Moon and is a natural extension of the lunar basin modeling work that I began as a PhD student at Brown University.
I was part of the GHOSST lab, a research group led by Professor Alexander Evans at Brown. Although our research interests are distinct, we all use numerical modeling to try to understand the planetary evolution.
