Description

Congratulations to Nicole North of the Allen research group on receiving a Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) fellowship from NASA to support her graduate research! Nicole was one of just 32 recipients out of 835 proposals received.  Her funded research will involve exploring the organics erupting from the surface of Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons, using machine learning.  The goal of the project is to enhance the return of data from the Cassini mission and to inform future NASA missions on how to better detect and describe these organic molecules.
