Dr Penny Wozniakiewicz

Lecturer in Space Science

Current Research Interests

My research interests include studying hypervelocity impacts in the laboratory, studying surfaces returned from low Earth orbit, investigating early solar system formation and evolution through the study of samples form comets and asteroids and investigating new methods for collecting extraterrestrial dust on Earth. Throughout my career I have been able to use a variety of analytical equipment, gaining expertise in scanning and transmission electron microscopy and focused ion beam sample preparation techniques.
