Dr. Ali BramsonAssistant Professor
- 2018 Ph.D., Planetary Sciences with Geosciences minor, University of Arizona
- 2015 M.S., Planetary Sciences with Geosciences minor, University of Arizona
- 2011 B.S., Physics and Astronomy-Physics with a Computer Science minor, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dr. Bramson studies problems related to understanding the quantitative geomorphology of other planets, especially the physical processes related to ice and volatiles that affect the surfaces of solid bodies in our solar system. She tackles these problems using a combination of spacecraft remote sensing observations and theoretical modeling, supplemented by occasional field work at terrestrial analog sites and experimental studies. Her research on Martian mid-latitude ice is helping to shape the future of in situ resource utilization and human exploration of Mars.
