Dr Lucy Forman

Dr Lucy Forman is an astro-geologist and is a postdoctorate researcher at Curtin within the school of Earth & Planetary Sciences. She is primarily working on martian meteorites to understand their deformation history and formation environment on the surface of Mars. Lucy completed her PhD at Curtin in 2017 where she discovered some of the first physical evidence of the asteroid compaction process by looking at the orientations of crystals within meteorites. She also dabbled in understanding how material was transported on Earth after the large impact ~65 million years ago, which is believed to have resulted in the demise of the dinosaurs. Lucy is a huge advocate for science communication and sharing scientific discoveries with the public, so other people may be inspired to get involved.
