Michael Sori - EAPS Grad. Student

Graduate student Mike Sori studies planetary science. His particular research interest is understanding the nature and variations in cratering of Earth’s moon. Using high-resolution altimeter data from the Lunar Reconaisance Orbiter to explore geographical differences in crater characterisics, Sori is seeking to better understand the structure and evolution of the moon in its own right and as a proxy for other rocky bodies in the inner Solar System and beyond. Mike joined EAPS in 2009 after completing his undergraduate studies in Physics and Math at Duke University. His advisor is Maria Zuber.
