Dr Martha A. Leake, PhD, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, PhD in Planetary Sciences from University of Arizona. Teaches Astronomy, some Geology and Physics, Physical Science, and Interdisciplinary courses
My research interests include the studies of the surfaces, interiors and evolution of solid bodies in the solar system, from Mercury to Triton (and maybe Pluto), and spectroscopy of asteroids and other solar system bodies. And yes, I'm in the "Pluto-as-Planet" camp, although it is the largest of the Kuiper Belt objects. Plus, I'm learning to make tacos from scratch (masa harina, actually).
