Brown Planetary Geosciences

Megan Bruck Syal

I use a combination of experimental, numerical, and observational methods to investigate impact processes throughout the solar system. While I am interested in the consequences of planetary impacts, I also take a broader interest in the structure and evolution of asteroids and comets, along with the refinement of impulsive approaches to defend the Earth against potentially hazardous objects. I recently completed my doctoral studies in Planetary Geosciences at Brown University (Providence, RI) and look forward to joining a dynamic group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in September 2014, where we will be investigating a range of potentially hazardous object mitigation strategies.
