Dr.Alexander Sehlke, NASA Ames Research Center
Volcanoes have fascinated Dr. Alexander Sehlke since his childhood. He started studying Geosciences at the Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany in 2005. In 2011, Alexander began his doctoral studies at the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Missouri – Columbia, and received his PhD in 2015. He studied the rheological evolution of terrestrial and planetary basalts during cooling and crystallization, experimentally. Alexander started his NASA post-doctoral fellowship at NASA Ames in February 2016, and focuses on the lavas erupted at the Craters of the Moon, Idaho. He is particularly interested in the thermo-physical properties of the rocks, and how these properties change within a lava flow that ultimately leads to different flow morphologies, and how these morphologies and rock properties appear in and can be linked to remote sense-based studies.
