Bose is an isotope cosmochemist, investigating the chemistry of asteroids and comets to understand how they originated and processes prevalent in small planetary bodies.
She is an assistant professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University and oversees the NanoSIMS (Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometer at the nano-scale), part of the National Science Foundation-funded SIMS Facility.
Professor Bose's current interests include:
1. Dust condensed in ancient stars called stardust or presolar dust grains (i.e., material that predates the Solar System)
2. Organic matter in primitive chondritic meteorites and interplanetary dust particles
3. Volatiles in asteroid regolith and meteorites from Mars, Moon, Vesta, asteroids
