Asmaa Boujibar
Carnegie Postdoctoral Fellow

Asmaa Boujibar is a Carnegie Fellow from NASA Johnson Space Center. She is interested in the origin of the chemical heterogeneities of extraterrestrial material and the formation of terrestrial planets of our Solar System and exoplanets from beyond. Boujibar uses various techniques to tackle these questions, including laboratory experiments, numerical modeling and big data analytics. By performing high pressure and temperature experiments and numerical modeling, she replicates the conditions of core segregation, crust formation and magma ocean crystallization. She also uses machine learning algorithms to evaluate the classification of meteorites and their components. She received her Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Science from the University Blaise Pascal in France.
