Dr Andrew Rushby



After a masters & PhD in the Environmental Science department of UEA, Andrew moved to NASA Ames in 2016 to start a Post-Doctoral fellowship. There he works with the “Nexus for Exoplanet Systems Science” (NExSS), which studies how the history, geology, and climate of exoplanets could interact to create the conditions for life.
