Eryn Cangi

Research Scientist in Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder

Using a mix of modeling and data analysis techniques, I study Martian atmospheric escape through the lens of H and D fractionation, working with Mike Chaffin and Nick Schneider as part of the MAVEN team. I'm also broadly interested in atmospheric dynamics and evolution of terrestrial planets, planetary climates, surface interactions, remote sensing, and planetary habitability. In the past, I have studied synchronization in astrophysical contexts (planetary rings, etc) using N-body simulations, developed methods of delineating solar and lunar atmospheric tides on Earth, and used astronomical imaging techniques to develop a method to detect global thin cirrus clouds.
