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 am currently working with an interdisciplinary group of scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to investigate a range of potentially hazardous object mitigation strategies.
