Back to MSFC Planetary Dr. Jack Conrad

Dr. Jack Conrad is a NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) Fellow at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. He grew up in Arkansas and Indiana before earning a BS in Physics from Purdue University in 2015 and a PhD from University of California Santa Cruz in 2020. For his dissertation, Jack researched the structure of Pluto and Charon’s water ice crusts by analyzing the topography of tectonic features. Overall, his research focuses on determining the internal large-scale history and properties of worlds by their external expression (topography, gravity, morphology, etc.). The particular focus of his postdoc fellowship at MSFC is impact cratering on Mercury, the Moon, and Mars. In addition to those worlds, Jack has worked on Venus, Europa, Enceladus, Pluto and Charon.
