Explore JPL Seminar #3
This lunch-time program is designed to help undergrads learn more about the research happening at the Jet Propulsion Lab and connect them with possible SURF mentors for next summer.
Focus: Math, planetary geology, geomorphology, atmospheric science, thermal and material engineering.
A boxed lunch will be provided.

Sabah Bux: Sabah K. Bux received her Bachelors of Science in Chemistry, Magna Cum Laude from California State Polytechnic University Pomona in 2005 and received her Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from UCLA in 2010. Currently she is a technologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory working in the thermal energy conversion technologies group (3464) where she is the lead researcher and task manager in the development of high performance advanced thermoelectric materials for space applications. Her main research focus is the investigation of new materials and synthesis of them using novel synthetic techniques/processes.
Serina Diniega: Serina Diniega is a mathematical planetary geomorphologist -- meaning that she enjoys explaining why landforms look the way they do on different planets, via a mathematical framework that reflects the physical processes acting on that landscape. She works on both Mars and the Europa missions, in addition to studying active processes forming sand dunes and gullies on Mars. Serina received her PhD in Applied Math (minor: Planetary Science) from the University of Arizona and her BS in Math from Caltech.
Annemarie Eldering: Annmarie Eldering is the Deputy Project Scientist for the Orbiting Carbon Observatory - 2 (OCO-2). She earned her PhD at Caltech, with a focus on air pollution and its impacts on visibility in Los Angeles. She joined JPL 16 years ago, adapting her knowledge of radiative transfer and light scattering to algorithm development for the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer as well as validation of AIRS data. She served as the Deputy Section Manager and Section Manager in Earth Atmospheric Sciences section before joining the OCO–2 project in 2010.
